Last week, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officers in New York seized hair dryers on behalf of the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The hair dryers were seized because the CPSC determined did not provide immersion protection in compliance the Standard for Safety for Household Electric Personal Grooming Appliances. Immersion protection reduces the risk of electrocution when products contact or are immersed in water.

A total of 65 hair dryers were seized by the CPSC due to a risk of a product hazard. The hair dryers were also seized on the basis of intellectual property rights (IPR) violations.
