Gemei branded Foldable Hair Dryers sold with a model number of GM-1755 and a EAN/barcode of 8 000012 009277. This recall alert was submitted by Hungary to the EU Safety Gateway.

These Gemei branded Foldable Hair Dryers are marketed, sold and delivered as consumer grade, portable, foldable, hand-held AC electric-powered hair dryers made of high impact white and light purple plastic with a rated power of 1300 Watts transferred through a 2.5 Amp flat plug.

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

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Gemei branded Foldable Hair Dryers include the reported finding that the heating wire of the recalled Hair Dryers can accidentally be touched through the safety grille because the safety distance is less than required by EU regulation.

As a result of this defect, an operator of the device may touch the live parts and receive an electric shock and/or burn when utilizing the product in a reasonable manner expected with its intended design and anticipated use. These Hair Dryers, therefore, do not reportedly fulfill the European health and safety requirements as specified by Europe’s Low Voltage Directive.

United Nations | World Health Organization___________________________________________________________

These Gemei branded Foldable Hair Dryers, therefore, do not comply with the Europe’s Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standards EN 60335-1 and EN 60335-2-23.

As a result of these reported defects, a recall of these Gemei branded Foldable Hair Dryers and a withdrawal of the products from the European marketplace has been ordered.
