Hair, Hand Dryers Recalled Due to Electric Shock Hazard

World Dryer Corp., of Berkeley Ill., is recalling about 25,000 World Dryer and Bradley brand hand and hair dryers because the nozzles on some of the units are not grounded. If an electrical component comes into contact with an ungrounded nozzle, it can pose a shock hazard to consumers. World Dryer has received a report of an electrical component coming into contact with an ungrounded nozzle outside the United States. As a result, one consumer suffered an electric shock.

The World Dryer and Bradley brand hand and hair dryers are wall-mounted dryers with nozzles protruding from the front that may be either recessed or surface mounted. The dryers are used primarily in rest rooms and locker rooms in public and commercial buildings.

The equipment was sold at industrial and electrical distributors and supply houses nationwide from June 2005 through April 2007 for between $600 and $1,000. World Dryer has been contacting facilities utilizing these dryers. Facilities that have the recalled dryers will receive a free repair kit. Consumers and facility managers that have not been contacted should call World Dryer with serial and model number to determine if the dryer is included in this recall. For more information, contact World Dryer at (800) 323-0701 or visit http://www.worlddryer.com.
