T3 is recalling over 9,000 curling irons because the clamp can detach and burn users.
So far, the company has been notified of 130 instances in which the curling iron clamps detached or became loose and two reports of burns.
The recall includes T3’s 360 Motion-Sensing Auto-Rotating 1.25 inch Curling Irons with model number 76570. The model number can be found on a printed label on the curling iron’s handle.
Affected models have a rose-gold colored grip, white plastic handle, and rotating heat barrel and clamp that are also white.
Approximately 8,400 units were sold in the U.S., as well as 800 units in Canada, at retailers such as Sephora, Nordstrom and professional beauty supply distributors, according to the company. Sales took place between December 2014 through October 2015 for prices close to $230.
Customers should stop using their curling irons immediately if they own the recalled model.
T3 is providing free prepaid shipping boxes for consumers to return the affected models for a free repair.
