The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is recalling National and Sanyo Hand-Held Hair Dryers because they don’t have an immersion protection device to prevent electrocution if the hair dryer falls into water.
The recall involves National and Sanyo hand-held hair dryers. The hair dryers are made of plastic and chrome with a fold-up handle, and were sold in blue, pink, white and black. Model numbers EH-5202, EH-5215, EH-5216, EH-7911, EH-7912, or EH-7913 and “National” and “Sanyo” can be found on the hair dryer’s blower nozzle or handle.
About 2,300 of the hair dryers were sold at various retail stores in the Los Angeles area from January 2007 through August 2008 for between $20 and $40 US each.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled hair dryers and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund or free replacement.
