Philips recalls 1.75 million hair dryers

ROYAL Dutch Philips Electronics Ltd is recalling 1.75 million hair dryers sold in the China market because these dryers are prone to catch fire due to a switch defect.

Three types of hair dryers -- HP4930, HP4931 and HP4940 -- produced between January 2008 and January 2011, will be recalled, the company said in a statement.

The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine said the dryer switch becomes hazardous with frequent use. In some extreme conditions, driers that have been powered off but are left connected to the socket may still heat up.

The company will replace the faulty dryers with new ones for customers. Detailed information is available on or at service hotline 800-820-0930.
