Their report comes after six members of the same family were killed in a house fire in Neasden last year, when a blaze began behind a chest freezer.
In total, there are more than 300 fires involving fridges or freezers across the UK every year.So what can be done about it?
Our reporter Paul Brand spoke to David Robinson from the London Fire Brigade. Pictures of fridges in this report are from LFB Bureau Veritas.
