The hair dryers do not have an immersion protection device, posing an electrocution or shock hazard if the dryer falls into water when plugged in.
This recall involves the LUS Dryer & Diffuser. The handheld hair dryers were sold in white, in a box that also contains a diffuser.

Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard.
