 NEW YORK, Sept. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Salon Power and Pazazz hairdryers purchased after Jan. 1, 1992, may have a defective circuit breaker plug, which could result in an electrical hazard. Clairol Appliances, the distributor, is voluntarily initiating a corrective action program. Consumers are being asked to return the products for a free replacement.
 According to the distributor, the prongs of the plug may break off and remain in the socket. Touching the prongs could result in serious injury. There have been no reports of injury.
 If the plug on one of the hairdryers in question breaks, leaving the prongs in the socket, consumers should not attempt to remove the prongs. They should immediately call 800-843-3876 for instructions and return the hairdryer for a replacement.
 The plugs can be found on some of these models: model No. IPD2, Salon Power Super 1500; model No. MP1D, Salon Power 1500; model No. FP1, Salon Power 1500; or model No. SD2CS, Pazazz 1500. The circuit breaker plug, which can be identified by a rectangular black test button on the front and the serial number HGW0351 on the back, can be found only on those hairdryers purchased after Jan. 1, 1992.
 Clairol Appliances has discontinued selling hairdryers with the defective plugs and is asking consumers who purchased Salon Power or Pazazz hairdryers after Jan. 1, 1992, to check the circuit breaker plug immediately. Consumers who match the test button and serial number should return the hairdryer for a replacement along with their name and address. Hairdryers should be returned via regular mail to: Dryer Plug Exchange, 80 Southfield Ave., Stamford, Conn., 06902.
 A replacement with similar features and of equal or greater value will be received within two to four weeks. Postage will be refunded.
 If the serial number does not match, the plug does not have a rectangular black test button, or it was purchased prior to Jan. 1, 1992, consumers can feel confident in the safety of the hairdryer.
