Garden maintenance giant Flymo have issued a Safety Recall notice after identifying a potential fault with two of their products.

Online PR News – 08-June-2011 – – As a popular vendor of Flymo products, appliance spares retailer are assisting in raising awareness of Flymo's recent Safety Recall Notice to ensure maximum coverage of customers receiving the correct information.

This safety issue lies with the charger that is supplied with two of Flymo’s cordless trimmers; the Contour Cordless XT and the Contour Cordless 500XT.

A free replacement charger can be claimed by filling out the Flymo Recall Form, or alternatively customers may contact the Flymo Freephone Helpline on 0800 023 7232. When contacting Flymo the product number and serial number will be required; these can be found on the rating label of the trimmer (see image, right, for location).

Information on safely disposing of the old charger will also be provided.
