Irish B & Q stores earlier this week issued an urgent safety notice on shower heads not compatible with electric showersover a burns risk.

[article-rail-section title=”MOST READ IN MONEY” posts_category=”20″ posts_number=”6″ query_type=”popular” /]

The Humberto Shower Head is not compatible with electric showers – and when installed to them, the flow restriction feature could cause scalding water to build up – meaning there’s a risk of burns.

TK Maxx and Homesense stores also issued an urgent recall on a popular lamp product over electric shock risk.

It’s estimated over 300 units of the Westlab branded Himalayan Pink Salt Lamp have been sold here.
