What’s the Problem?
This recall affects about 2,700 LUS dryers and diffusers, according to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) .
The recalled hair dryers do not have an immersion protection device, posing an electrocution or shock hazard if the dryer falls into water when plugged in, CPSC said.
Affected dryers were sold in white, and have the model number HD-LUS01 printed under the back end of the device. The logos “LUS Brands” and “Love Ur Curls” are located on either side of the back end of the dryer. The recalled blow dryers were sold online from Nov. 2019 to Feb. 2020 for between $125 and $144.
If you purchased an LUS hair dryer that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and unplug it. LUS Distribution is contacting all registered owners and offering either a full refund or $175 store credit. This recall began on April 23, 2020.
Hair Dryer Electrocution Risk
A hair dryer is a fire hazard whenever it is plugged in, and can also deliver a powerful electrical shock. If moisture gets into the wall socket or the internal components of the hair dryer, then the appliance can overheat, burn and start a fire or cause an electrocution.
If water is touched during a time of low-resistance connection with the ground, the hair dryer can electrocute the person using it. Whenever there is water and splashing of water in the sink near the hair dryer, a risk of electrical shock is present.
A hair dryer that is plugged into an electrical outlet is live, even if it is in the “off” position. This means that even if a hair dryer is switched onto the “off” position, it can still electrocute you if touched under the right conditions, and start a room fire.
