AG Hair Recalls Hair Dryers – Electrocution Hazard
AG Hair has recently recalled about 3,100 units of the company’s Sweet Heat Hair dryers due to evidence that the products pose an electrocution hazard to those who use them.
About the Hair Dryer Recall
According to the U.S Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), AG Hair has recently recalled its Sweet Heat Hair dryers after discovering that the product does not have an immersion protection device.
An immersion protection device is very important in protecting against electrocution or shock if the product becomes immersed in water – which is why the hair dryers pose a hazard to consumers.
Though there have been no reports of injury due to the blow dryers, the CPSC and AG Hair company advise that consumers immediately unplug and stop using the hair dryers and contact AG Hair to request a pre-paid mailing label and packaging in order to return the device for a full refund.
