WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Pebco Inc., of Congers, N.Y., is voluntarily recalling about 22,500 hairdryers. These hairdryers have undersized wiring, are not equipped with ground fault circuit interrupters to cut off electrical current in case of contact with water, and have loose electrical connections. The hairdryers pose an electrocution and fire hazard to consumers.
