Like all defective products, these products have something wrong with them that can cause unwanted side effects or illnesses. In the case of cosmetics, defects can be from the manufacturer, misleading sales tactics or from faulty marketing practices.
The FDA, Food and Drug Administration, includes lists of product recalls from the last 60 days. According to the FDA, products recalls are based on “the extent of distribution and the degree of health risk.”
Cosmetics can range from make up and face cleaner to fragranced candles or dog treats. According to recalls.gov, the two most important laws pertaining to cosmetics marketed in the United States are the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic (FD&C) and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act (FPLA).
The FD&C is responsible for prohibiting the marketing of adulterated or misbranded cosmetics according to recalls.gov. The following are high risk recalls for December-January 2010 according to recalls.gov:
