Consumer Protection, in cooperation with Oman Trading Establishment (“OTE”), launched a campaign to recall Bosch gas cookers and hobs. The recall covers 82 integrated cookers made in Turkey from January 2009 to October 2011, and 108 gas hobs made in Turkey from January 2009 to October 2011.

 

The recall comes within BSH Home Appliances voluntary campaign to ensure the safety of certain house cookers to avoid the potential risk from the gas connectors, with the possibility of uncontrolled gas leak which, in rare occasions, may cause explosion.
The company is calling on all the consumers having any of the said models to ensure that they are covered in the campaign, and reiterate to the consumers who called earlier to verify the models of their cookers and concluded that there is no need to change the gas connector to recheck again, and the company will be sending authorized maintenance expert to all the consumers having cookers covered by the campaign, and the connectors will be replaced free of charge.
The recalls confirm the efforts by Consumer Protection in various aspects, and are consistent with its concern to carry our continuous revision for all the products in the Omani markets to provide the protection required for all the consumers.
