Conair Corp., East Windsor, New Jersey, has recalled about 291,000 compact hair dryers. The spinning fan within the hair dryer can break apart, striking the hair dryer’s plastic shell. This causes the plastic to shatter, creating a laceration hazard. Conair has received 16 reports of the fan breaking, causing the plastic shell to shatter. The company has also received reports of the hair dryers sparking and smoking. Reportedly, one person sought medical attention for a laceration to the hand; seven people reported minor cuts.
This recall involves the BabylissPro 052 Series Professional Compact Hair Dryer. The hair dryer is sold under the brand names Babyliss® Pro Mighty Mini, Babyliss® Pro Nano Titanium(TM), Babyliss® Pro Porcelain Ceramic, BabylissPro TT® Tourmaline and BabylissPro TT® Tourmaline Titanium. The hair dryers were sold at professional salons and various other online retailers from January 2006 to April 2010 for between $20 and $30. Consumers should immediately stop using the hair dryer and contact Conair to receive a free replacement hair dryer.
