A child’s sketchbook that includes eye makeup is being recalled because it could be contaminated with staph infection, according to news reports .
The Bratz Makeup Design Sketch Book is being recalled, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The products were found to contain elevated levels of Staphylococcus warneri and Staphylococcus intermedius in eye shadow sold with the products.
So far, no reports of personal injuries have been reported.
Included in the recall is:
- 6,200 Bratz Makeup Design Sketch Books manufactured between November 5, 2010 and February 25, 2010. Sketch books affected by the recall have a product number of 504788 and UPC of 0-35-51-50478-8.
The product was sold nationwide.
As a Charleston personal injury attorney, I urge parents to check their children’s toys for this recalled item. Staph infection can cause symptoms including fever, chills, sweats, small areas of tenderness or swelling, open sores that develop redness, warmth swelling and pain.
While we don’t handle this type of recall we feel that it’s important to educate the community that there has been a recall to help protect your safety. If you have been injured in a recall like this you might wish to contact a Charleston personal injury lawyer who can help.
