Recall Of Hand-Held Curling Irons

WASHINGTON, D.C. (May 1) -- C & S Trading Co., Carson, Calif., in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), today announced a voluntary recall of model 100 "Magic Curl" hand-held curling irons because they pose a possible burn or shock hazard.

The curling irons subject to recall contain a chrome-coated heating element and a yellow swivel handle. Thousands of these devices were sold nationwide between January 1976 and November 1976.

The model 100 "New Magic Curl" curling iron with a white handle is not being recalled. No permanent identifying marks are embossed on the curling iron itself. However, there are two stickers on the swivel handle -- one with the name and address of C&S Trading Co., and the other with " 'Magic Curl,' 120V-60c/s, H130W, LOW15W, Korea."

The curling irons are packaged in a purple and gold or blue and gold cardboard box with the words, "Professional Curling Iron, 'MAGIC CURL' " prominently displayed on two sides.

The defect lies in the handle casing, which can separate after a short period of use, allowing sparks to be emitted and creating the possibility of shock or burns. CPSC staff is aware of five burn incidents and one shock accident related to the curling irons.

Consumers are urged to immediately stop using the recalled curling irons and either return them to their dealer or mail them to the C&S Trading Co., 138 East Savarona Way, Carson, Calif. 90746, (213) 770-1485, for a free replacement; curling iron and reimbursement of postage costs.

Anyone wanting additional information about this recall should contact the C&S Trading Co.
