Make Up Remover Recalled Over Possible Contamination

Comments Off

SimplySmart “Remove” Make Up Remover was voluntarily recalled by Celeste Industries Corporation in the U.S. and Canada after certain lots tested positive for Pseudomonas aeruginosa bacteria, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

The bacterium may cause eye infections, respiratory infections, dermatitis and other health issues, especially in those with compromised immune systems.

Because the Make-Up Remover may be used in the area of the eye, there is a possibility that inadvertent introduction of the tainted product directly in the eye could result in serious eye infections.

To date, no illnesses have been reported in conjunction with this recalled product.

Consumer Contact: Celeste Industries Corporation can be reached directly at 410-822-6200, ext 1349 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. EST and ask for Quality Assurance or e-mail at recall@celestecorp.com.
