UK Trading Standards has issued a recall for a counterfeit version of the Airwrap by Dyson, sold exclusively on eBay.

The recall notice shows the item was sold by seller β€˜nana_6036’. The listing has been removed from the platform and to eBay's credit, the seller appears to have been removed from the site as well.

However, I do hope eBay is also assisting all the buyers who purchased this and other supposed Dyson products this seller had listed, as well as the Apple chargers and iPhones that were likely counterfeit as well.

The notice states:
