Recall of products

You may have them in your cupboards. Maybe, you use them, still. Beware: they are dangerous, illegal, harmful… and are the subject of a recall or ban by the European sanitary authorities. Underneath, you may find all the cosmetic products targeted by the RAPEX alert system this week: perfumes containing non-labelled allergens and a lightening lotion formulated with prohibited preservatives.
