What’s the Problem?

The suit alleges that Plaintiff Rita Perna-Allor was working as a professional hair stylist at the Blue Water Spa and Salon in Monroe, Michigan, in Jan. 2017 when the Hot Tools Curling Iron (MODEL # 1130) she was using shorted out.

Perna-Allor was rushed to the burn center at St. Vincent’s Medical Center in Toledo, Ohio, but
could not remember her address or phone number, the complaint states. She had difficulty speaking and fat had liquefied in her arms, which were covered with dark spots. Gangrene had set in within 2 weeks of the incident, according to the lawsuit.

Other injuries included severe electrical shock to Plaintiff’s right fingers, hand, wrist, and arm including the vascular and nervous system of her entire body, the complaint states.

Perna-Allor is suing Helen of Troy, the company that manufactures Hot Tools Curling Irons, for failing to have an adequate handle and other safety features, and Blue Water Spa and Salon for not having properly grounded (GFI) outlets.

Conair Recalls Curling Irons for Shock, Electrocution Hazards

On February 7, 2007, Conair Corp. announced a recall [1.] for about 322,000 curling irons over concerns that the handle of the curling iron can come apart exposing its line cord, and posing a shock or electrocution hazard to consumers.

The recall affects ceramic, gold-matte finish curling irons that have a 1-inch barrel, metal counterrest, vertically placed ON-OFF buttons, and a heat set dial that ranges from 0 to 30.

A 4-digit date code can be found on the plug prong, and the word “Conair” is printed on the handle of the iron. Date codes included in this recall range from November 2005 through July 2006.

The recalled curling irons were sold at discount retailers and drug stores nationwide during January 2006 for about $25.
