A recall notice has been issued for a counterfeit version of the popular hair styling product by Dyson, the Airwrap.

The counterfeit product was sold on eBay and is reported to have a high risk of electric shocks.

The recall notice, issued by the Office for Product Safety and Standards, claims the item was sold by a seller called ‘nana_6036’ with the listing of ‘Dyson Airwrap Complete Hair Styler Gift Edition Copper Gold £339’.

The notice lists the warning level as serious, citing a risk of electric shock or fire.

“The product has been identified as presenting a serious risk of electric shock,” the description states.

“The product's internal wiring is inadequate with insufficient creepage and clearance distances. Should the wiring fail, the insufficient creepage and clearance distances may lead to the product becoming live, which if touched by a user can lead to an electric shock.

“The insufficient creepage and clearance distances also present a risk of fire. The product does not meet the requirements of the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016.”

The listing has now been removed by eBay.

The recall issue advises that owners stop using this product immediately and contact your distributor immediately.
