The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has issued a Gas Safety Recall for 16 models of SWIFT 500 Series Cooker/Grill and Cooktops after discovering a part of the gas supply pipe may break or develop a hole.
MTA WA Members that sell, hire, repair or use vehicles that contain SWIFT Gas Cookers need to be aware of the following information.
The MTA WA has received a number of requests for advice and support from Members of the Caravan, Campervan and RV sector regarding the safety of some Swift Cookers. The MTA WA had requested advice from the WA Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety - Building and Energy WA (the Department).
This alert aims to provide MTA WA Members with a summary of facts, and the latest advice.
What We Know (The Facts)
“Retailers should contact Swift for the latest guidance on the recall and remediation.
Retailers should not sell the caravan, campervan or RV with the Swift appliance installed. It must be removed by a licensed gas fitter prior to the vehicle being sold.
A person who fails to comply with the order commits an offence with a penalty of $250 000.”
MTA WA Members are invited to contact their Association for more information.
