In much of the world refrigerators with "green" refrigerants are widely used. The isobutane refrigerant is explosive, so, unlike with the freon refrigerants used in the US, leaks can be dangerous. It seems that a few spectacular explosions of refrigerators have happened in Great Britain. The industry spokeswoman says the explosions are very, very rare. I'm sure that makes people feel better about having one in the kitchen.

It's only a problem when they leak. As this fairly new technology begins to age these 300 million greenfreeze fridges are bound to develop more and more leaks resulting in more kitchen kabooms!
