Black hair straighteners packaged in a black cardboard box.

The product presents a serious risk of electric shock as the plug supplied with the product is noncompliant and can allow access to live parts. Also, during testing it was identified that the basic insulation of the wires is in contact with accessible metal parts. If the basic insulation was to wear over time and the wire touches an external metal part, the user could touch this part and receive an electric shock. Some of the required documentation and markings were not present.

The product does not meet the requirements of the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016.
