In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Solis, a Switzerland-based maker of hair dryers, and Fromm International-Solis USA, an importer based in Northbrook, IL, U.S, announced voluntary recalls of 16,500 Solis hair dryers.

Consumers were advised to stop using the recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

Although no injuries were reported, the hair dryers do not have an immersion protection device or ground fault circuit interrupter (GFCI) on the power cord, which can cause 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 "on" and "off" position.

Affected hair dryers include model numbers 311, 340, 401, 405, 407, 407T, 411, and 415 (pictured). The recalled units, which come in black and blue, do not have an immersion protection device at the end of the plug.

The hair dryers, which were manufactured in Switzerland, were sold through U.S. professional beauty distributors between November 2002 and December 2003 for about U.S. $90.
