Check It Tuesday

With recent media attention on the domestic appliances that have been the cause of some devastating house fires, Suffolk Trading Standards are running a campaign via social media to raise awareness of recalled products.

Every Tuesday, Trading Standards are calling on their followers to “Check It“, requesting them to not only check the appliances in their own home, and the food in their cupboards, but those of their friends, family and neighbours.

Each Tuesday they highlight some of the products that are subject to product recalls, and all they ask of you is to do three things:

  1. Share the information with your followers on Twitter using the hashtag #CheckItTuesday and share the links on Facebook
  2. Check your home for the products that have been recalled
  3. Check the homes of your friends, family and neighbours who may not be aware of the recall
