A curling iron is being recalled by its manufacturer due to a burn hazard.

T3 Micro Inc. is voluntarily recalling the Twirl 360 Curling Iron. According to reports, the clamp can detach while the equipment is in use, posing a burn hazard to consumers. T3 is including about 8,400 units in the recall.

The recalled items have a white plastic handle, a white metal rotating heat barrel and clamp, and a rose-gold colored grip. Model number 76570 is printed on the label that is placed on the handle of the tool and T3 is printed on the curling iron's barrel.

Consumers could purchase these items at Nordstrom and Sephora stores and professional beauty supply distributors nationwide from December 2014 through October 2015 for about $230.

The firm has received 130 reports of loose or detached curling iron clamps including two reports of minor burns.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled curling irons and contact T3 for a prepaid shipping box to return the curling iron for a free repair.

Owners with questions about the recall can contact T3 Micro at (866) 376-8880.
