The CPSC Announced The Recall Of Hair Dryers. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announces the following recall in voluntary cooperation with the firm listed below. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed
Name of Product: Electric hand-held hair dryers
Manufacturer: Lado Co. of America, of Flushing, N.Y.
Recalled Hair Dryers Don’t Have A GFCI
Hazard: These hair dryers do not have an immersion protection device or ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) on the power cord, which poses a serious electrocution hazard if dropped in water. In 1991, a voluntary standard was implemented that called for all hair dryers used by consumers to protect against electrocution in both the â€œonâ€� and â€œoffâ€� positions.
Description: The recalled units are the Formula 3000, Energy Turbo, and Rapid 1085 electric hand-held hair dryers. These hair dryers have a pistol grip, black or dark blue colored plastic casing, two-prong power cord, and a label that reads in part: â€œLado Professionalâ€� and â€œ110V/60HZâ€�. The model name and number also are printed on the label.
Sold at: Retail beauty supply stores in the metropolitan New York area from March 2003 through December 2003 for about $50.
