The importer Saroj International Inc. and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of about 4,000 (14,000 sold in Mexico) Eusonic Hair Dryers. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.
The electric hair dryer’s power cord does not have an immersion protection plug. Therefore, if the hair dryer falls into water during use, it can pose a shock and/or electrocution hazard. No incidents or injuries have been reported.
The hair dryers recalled are the Eusonic model numbers 9318, 9329 and 2218. The model numbers are imprinted on the opposite side of the handle from where the slide switch is situated. The hair dryers are red, have a black slide switch and the word Eusonic is imprinted in black on the blower part of the hair dryer.
The hair dryers were sold at various retail stores nationwide from May 2003 through December 2004 for about U.S. $10.
Consumers should stop using these hair dryers immediately and return it to the store where it was purchased to receive a full refund.
