But are all of these safety products safe? Here at W.K House Clearance we have a responsibility to ensure anything we donate is fit and safe for purpose. We have compiled a list of 4 safety products that have been recalled because in fact they aren’t safe for use.  As most of these products have been recalled because they offer a risk of electric shock or electrical fire, they present a serious risk.
