Advice to vanners: Swift 500 Series Caravan Gas Cookers usage amid ACCC investigation

Australian consumers must cease using their Swift 500 Series Caravan Gas Cookers as an investigation into fire safety risks gets underway.

“All Models INCLUDING COOKTOPS, GRILLS & OVENS are NOT ALLOWED TO BE USED AUSTRALIA WIDE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE,” writes Swift on its website.

“Please be informed the electrical element can still be used,” Swift further explains.

Swift Appliance Group will work with the ACCC, WA DMIRS and Resources Safety and Health Queensland to identify if there are any gas explosion safety risks in the Swift 500 Series Caravan Gas Cookers. The company will wait for advice from the ACCC and WA authorities to determine what action ought to be taken next.

“We will provide more information as soon as possible after conferring with the regulatory bodies. Consumers must immediately cease using the products until tests determine the cause of the explosion and the products are deemed safe,” writes Swift.
