CPSC Announces Recall of Thousands of Hair Dryers That Pose Electrocution Hazard

The Consumer Product Safety Commission and Saroj International Inc., of Vernon, California, have announced the voluntary recall of some 4,000 Eusonic Hair Dryers in the U.S. (!4,000 of the dryers were sold in Mexico). Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately.

Although no injuries have been reported, the recalled hair dryer’s power cord does not have an immersion protection plug. Therefore, if the hair dryer falls into water during use, it can pose a shock and/or electrocution hazard.

The affected hair dryers were manufactured in China and are identified as Eusonic models numbers 9318, 9329, and 2218. The model numbers are imprinted on the opposite side of the handle from where the slide switch is situated.

The hair dryers are red, have a black slide switch and the word Eusonic is imprinted in black on the blower part of the hair dryer.

These dryers were sold at various retail stores nationwide from May 2003 through December 2004 for about $10.

Consumers should stop using these hair dryers immediately and return it to the store where it was purchased to receive a full refund. Contact Saroj International Inc., toll free at (877) 277-1055 between 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or by email at sales@sarojusa.com.
