Hotpoint says customer safety 'always our top priority'

Hotpoint has said the safety of its customers "is always our top priority" after an ITV News investigation found hundreds of thousands of dishwashers remain unaccounted for despite safety recalls.

The manufacturer said in a statement:

As the leading white good manufacturer the safety of our customers is always our top priority.

We always work in close consultation with the relevant industry safety bodies and initially, due to the age of the appliances involved and the relatively small number estimated to still be in use it was not deemed necessary to initiate a repair programme.
