UPDATE: Conair Hair Dryer Class Action Lawsuit Filed in New Jersey
In March 2020, a class action lawsuit was filed against Conair Corp. by consumers who bought defective hair dryers that can spark, emit smoke, catch on fire, or cause burn injuries during use.
The lawsuit was filed by two women who bought the Infiniti Pro 1875-watt hair dryer (259/279 Series) at Target. The hair dryers were also sold at Sam’s Club, Walmart, CVS Pharmacies, and other stores.
The lawsuit (PDF) was filed on March 9, 2020 in the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey — Jennifer B. and Karen L., v. Conair Corporation — Case Number 3:20-cv-02543-FLW-TJB.
Another Conair Hair Dryer Class Action Filed in Illinois
In February 2020, another class action lawsuit was filed against Conair on behalf of consumers in Illinois who bought an Infiniti Pro Hair Styler (Series 259Y).
The lead plaintiffs are two women who were burned on their arms and wrists when a Conair hair dryer emitted sparks or flames.
According to the lawsuit complaint, the “safety plug” on the hair dryers is defective because it can fail to protect users from sparks. The women say they never would have purchased the Infiniti Pro hair dryers if they had known about the fire hazard.
The lawsuit (PDF) was filed on February 18, 2020 in the Circuit Court of Cook County (Illinois) — Emily H. et al. v. Conair Corp. — Case Number 2020L001943.
