I have a Sweet Heat Dryer is that being recalled for safety reason also?
No this recall does not affect the Canadian version of the Sweet Heat Dryer
Why, what is the difference?
This recall is due to differing building codes in the US and Canada. The US requires that an appliance such as a dryer has a built in immersion device to protect against shock or electrocution in the event of total immersion of the unit in water. You may have seen the most common type which is a large plug with a red breaker on many US appliances). Canadian dryers do not require this device as our building codes stipulate that Ground Fault Protectors (GFI’s) are built into the electrical receptacles in your home particularly bathrooms or other areas were water and electricity might combine. IF you do not have a GFI built into your bathroom, or you are unsure please do not use this dryer, or any other electrical device, until you check with your electrician.
If I am not sure can I return it anyway?
AG Hair wants you to be happy with any purchase of any AG product. If you still feel unsure or concerned we will be happy to refund your money. Just send us the dryer back with a copy of your receipt and we will take care of the rest.
