In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, T3 has recalled its Twirl 360 Curling Irons. According to the CPSC, the curling iron’s clamp can detach while in use and pose a burn hazard.
According to the company, the recall involves T3 Twirl 360 Motion-Sensing Auto-Rotating 1.25 inch Curling Irons. The curling irons have a white plastic handle, a white metal rotating heat barrel and clamp, and a rose-gold colored grip. Model number 76570 is printed on the label that is affixed to the handle of the tool and T3 is printed on the curling iron’s barrel.
The CPSC said it has received 130 reports of loose or detached curling iron clamps including two reports of minor burns.
T3 said there were about8,400 units sold in the U.S., at Nordstrom and Sephora stores and professional beauty supply distributors nationwide from December 2014 through October 2015 for about $230. In addition, T3 noted that about 800 were sold in Canada.
The CPSC said that consumers should immediately stop using the recalled curling irons and contact T3 for a prepaid shipping box to return the curling iron for a free repair.
