Recall curling iron T3 280x210 Curling iron recall announced due to reports of detachment during use, minor burnsMore than 8,000 curling irons with clamps that may detach during use are now under recall by T3 Micro and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

The curling iron recall singles out the T3 Twirl 360 Motion-Sensing Auto-Rotating 1.25 inch Curling Irons. The recalled curling irons can be identified by their white handle, metal rotating heat barrel and clamp, as well as the rose-gold color grip. The hair tool’s handle should have a label with model number 76570. The T3 logo can be found along the curling iron’s barrel.

Before the curling iron recall was announced, T3 Micro and CPSC received word of 130 incidents involving the curling iron’s clamps detaching or becoming excessively loose. Only two of the reports resulted in burns.

From December 2014 through October 2015, the recalled curling irons were sold for about $230 at Nordstrom, Sephora and other professional beauty supply distributors across the nation. The curling irons were manufactured in China.

T3 Micro and CPSC ask all consumers in possession of the recalled T3 Twirl 360 Motion-Sensing Auto-Rotating Curling Irons to stop using the hair styling tool immediately and contact T3 to receive a prepaid shipping box. The company plans to repair the issue with the curling irons and mail them back to consumers free of charge.
