Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Hair Dryers are subject to this recall:

  • Beautycare Co. Pro Hair Dryer PH 5304; APN number: 9341102065049
  • Beautycare Co. 2000W Hair Dryer Black HD-9901; APN number: 9341102065056
  • Beautycare Co. 1800W Hair Dryer White HD-9902; APN number: 9341102061935

Please consult the photograph above for details of the products’ packaging, design and retail presentation. Additional images of the recalled Hair Dryers are pictured on the Web site above.

According to the ACCC, the flexible cord of the recalled Hair Dryers can fail at the entry to the unit resulting in arcing and exposing live parts. The Hair Dryers, therefore, fail to meet the flexing requirements of Australia’s electrical safety standard. If the defect occurs, it poses burn and/or electric shock hazards.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession any of the recalled Hair Dryers, please do not use them. Instead, kindly return the product to the store where you purchased it for a full refund.
