Allure Hair Dryers Recalled After Consumers Report Burn Injuries

About 235,000 hair dryers have been recalled because they could overheat and cause a fire. According to a CBS News report, nearly 20 people have reported they were shocked or burned while using these hair dryers, which were sold online by retailers including Wal-Mart and Amazon. This product recall involving Allure and Allure Pro 2200W hand-held dryers comes after its New York distributor, Ztava, received 193 reports of the products or their power cords overheating, melting, exploding or catching fire.

The company reportedly heard from 18 consumers burned by the appliances, one severely and four sustaining blisters, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Two others reported suffering electric shocks while using the product. The hair dryers were made in China and sold online on various sites such as Amazon.com, eBay and Walmart.com from October 2014 through August 2018. The CPSC advises consumers to stop using the dryers immediately and contact the company for a free replacement.

Types of Burn Injuries

Burn injuries could be caused by hot appliances, things that catch on fire or explode, and items that emit electrical current. Regardless of what causes your burn injuries, suffering these types of injuries could be a traumatic experience, both physically and emotionally. The seriousness of burn injuries is measured in degrees.

First-degree burn injuries are the most minor of burn injuries. You cannot see much damage other than reddened skin. Second-degree burns are more serious and could result in blistered skin and the need for more intensive treatment. Third- and fourth-degree burn injuries are the most serious and could result in the skin turning leathery or white and could cause damage to internal organs as well tissues, muscles and nerves.

If You Have Been Injured

If you or a loved one has been injured as the result of a dangerous or defective product, you may be able to seek compensation for the damages you have suffered including medical expenses, lost wages, hospitalization, rehabilitation, cost of surgeries, permanent disabilities, scarring and disfigurement and pain and suffering. Injured victims may be able to file a product liability lawsuit against a number of parties including the manufacturer, retailer and distributor. An experienced product defect attorney will be able to advise injured victims and their families regarding their legal rights and options.
