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 product targeted by the RAPEX alert system this week: a baby washing gel and hair products (henna and cleansing powder) contaminated with bacteria.
