If you have an AIQRZBI or IGIA handheld hair dryer brush in your bathroom, unplug it and don’t use it again. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) warns the products present an electrocution hazard.

Despite the threat, there is no recall so far for the products.

According to the CPSC, the hair dryer brushes can lack an immersion protection device that prevents electrocution by shutting off the device if it gets immersed in, or otherwise contacts, water. 

The CPSC said it has determined that hair dryers lacking required integral immersion protection present substantial product hazards.  

Sold on Amazon

The products are a combination of a hair dryer and hair brush. They were sold in multiple colors and styles and have interchangeable brush heads. 

When turned on, air enters at the base of the handle, a heating element warms the air, and the air exits through openings along the length of the hairbrush.  The body of the unit contains a dial at the base of the handle with settings, OFF, LOW, MIDDLE and HIGH. 

The products are designed to straighten, curl and wave hair.  AIQRZBI or IGIA are printed on the hair dryer brush handles.

The hair dryers were sold on Amazon.com for between $30 and $71. Some of the known ASINs associated with these products are identified below.
