Detour Corp. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, announced a voluntary recall of about 18,000 Travel’N Baby Mini Hair Dryers. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

These electric hair dryers are not equipped with an immersion protection plug to prevent electrocution if the hair dryer falls into water. Electric shock protection devices are required by industry standards for all electric hand-held hair dryers. If the hair dryer falls into water during use and is not equipped with this safety device, it can pose a shock and/or an electrocution hazard to consumers. No injuries have been reported.

The recalled hair dryers are made of plastic and are red, blue or green. The hair dryer’s handle folds up. The words “Travel’N Baby” are printed on one side of the hair dryer.

The products are sold by independent beauty supply stores and beauty salons nationwide and online at www.metropolisbeauty.com from January 2004 through January 2005 for about U.S. $20.
