Style Tronics Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of about 19,300 Monica and Turbo 1200 hand-held hair dryers. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed, and contact Style Tronics Inc. for a full refund.

These electric hair dryers are not equipped with an immersion protection plug to prevent electrocution if the hair dryer falls into water. Such electric shock protection devices are required by industry standards for all electric hand-held hair dryers. There have not been any incidents or injuries reported.

The recall involves two models of pistol-type hair dryers. The Monica hair dryer has its model name and number, SW-117, written on the handle. It is made of black plastic and chrome, and the handle folds up. The Turbo 1200 model has model number DS-507 written on the back of the handle. The model name is written on the blower nozzle. They are green and white and green. The hair dryers were sold at independent discount stores nationwide from April 2004 through June 2005.
