Sanyo microwaves recall announced over 'severe electric shock' fears
Electricals giant Sanyo has announced a recall of thousands of microwaves sold in the UK and Ireland between March 2010 and January 2012 over fears they can cause 'severe electric shock'.
The company has released a recall notice on its website warning consumers of the recall, saying the models in question - Sanyo EM-C8787B UK2 (a black colour) and EM-C8787W (a white colour) - have 'the potential of electricity leakage'.
'Sanyo Sales & Marketing Europe regrets to announce the discovery of a
possible defect in [some] microwave oven models... manufactured from February 2010 and sold in the UK and Ireland from March 2010 until January 2012,' the statement reads.
'If you are using either of these models please stop using it immediately, unplug the power cord and contact Sanyo.'
