Denise Branton, whose son died aged 32 from carbon monoxide poisoning, believes that when such incidents happen possible causes should be reported as soon as possible - and not wait until an inquest.
Peter Dartford, from the Chief Fire Officers' Association, said he is "very concerned about the number of faulty products in people's homes."
"It is the manufacturers who have created these risks and it is their moral and legal responsibility to ensure the risks are eradicated," he added.
– BOSCH STATEMENT
Since the start of the voluntary repair action in July 2011, we have traced and repaired 183,647 of the affected dishwashers.
Although 632,000 were distributed in the UK, as the machines are now 8-14 years old it is not possible to accurately estimate of the number of appliances that are still in use as many will have been replaced or reached the end of their natural life.
To do so would be pure speculation. The affected models were manufactured between 1999 - 2005.
We deeply regret the incidents involving a limited number of our models and unreservedly and sincerely apologise to everyone who has been affected. Beko's highest priority is the safety of our customers.
Beko is just one of many manufacturers to have launched product recalls in recent years. In addition, Beko's success rate in finding affected models is 3-4 times greater than the industry average of 10-20%, as reported by the Electrical Safety Council.
