Lip Gloss Keychains Recalled For Lead Hazard

Comments Off

Markwins Beauty Products, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), voluntarily recalled 75,000 Lip Gloss Keychains because they contain high levels of lead.

If ingested by small children, lead is toxic and can lead to adverse health effects.

To date, the company has not received any reports of injury associated with the recalled products.

The recall involves lip gloss with a metal clasp keychain attached to the cap by a chain. Markings on the lip gloss container read, “Lip Gloss,” “Brillant á lèvres,” “Fantasy Makers®” and “from the creators of Wet n Wild.”

Consumers are advised to immediately take the recalled products away from children and to contact the company for an exchange or full refund.

Consumer Contact: For additional information, consumers can contact Markwins Beauty Products directly at (800) 626-8878 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. PT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm’s Web site at www.markwins.com #
