CPSC, Pacific LA Announce Recall of Hairdryers

Los Angeles, CA (SafetyAlerts) - Pacific LA is voluntarily recalling more than 5,100 portable hairdryers. The hairdryers present shock and electrocution hazards because they are not equipped with ground fault circuit interrupters to cut off electrical current in case of contact with water.

The recalled hairdryers are both standard and mini or travel hairdryers. They come in various wattages, colors and models. Brand names on some of the hairdryers are "LOGIX" and "TraVeller's." Some were sold with brushes, combs, adapter plugs or travel cases. They are made in China.

Consumers should stop using the recalled hairdryers immediately and return them to the store where purchased for a full refund.

For additional information, consumers should call Pacific LA at (888) 999-1559 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. PDT Monday through Friday or access the company's website at www.pacific-la.com.
