Kemei branded Professional Pet Clipper and Hair Clipper Sets, sold with a classification/rating of KN95, a model number of EB09.049 and a standard CE regulatory approval designation.

These products are marketed as entry level hair clippers for pets and people and used to cut and trim hair from various body parts. The main clipper device is finished in white plastic, is printed with the brand, “Kemei” in black and comes with a variety of blade offset attachments to modify the length of cut hair. The kit also comes with a white-covered paperback instruction manual.

No barcodes, UPCs, DINs, item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, batch/lot designations, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Kemei branded Professional Pet Clipper and Hair Clipper products include the reported finding that the product was marketed, sold and delivered with a substandard power adaptor for permanent use with inadequate insulation to guard against electrical shock, electrocution, and/or burns when being operated in a reasonable manner expected with its intended use.

As a direct consequence of this reported defect, an end user could contact the live part of the Power Adaptor and suffer electrical injury or burns.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these Kemei branded Professional Pet Clipper and Hair Clipper Sets products do not comply with the requirements of the applicable European Low Voltage Directive and the relevant national standard BS 1363.

Consequently, a recall of these Kemei branded Professional Pet Clipper and Hair Clipper Sets and a withdrawal of the products from the online marketplace [and recall from end users} has been ordered.
