Class Action Alleges Infiniti Hair Dryers Catch Fire, Cause Burns
Plaintiffs Emily Hergert and Julie McClanahan allege in the class action that they suffered wrist and forearm burns caused by sparks from their Conair Infiniti Pro Hair Stylers Series 259Y Hair Dryers.
“In each incident, the Dryers malfunctioned even though they were equipped with ‘safety plugs’ designed to recognize a change in the electrical current,” the complaint states. “In each case, the ‘safety plugs’ did not prevent the Dryer from sparking and causing injury.”
Hergert and McClanahan claim they would not have purchased their Conair Infiniti Hair Dryers had they known the products could spark, catch fire, or were otherwise defective. The class action seeks to represent Illinois residents who purchased the Infiniti Pro Hair Styler Series 259Y, including those who were injured because of the hair dryer between Feb. 24, 2019, and the present.
The lawsuit is: Emily Hergert, et al. v. Conair Corp., Case No. 2020L001943, in the Circuit Court of Cook County.
