Avon Eyelash Curlers Recalled for Eye Hazard

By on May 16, 2014

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported that Avon recalled almost 520,000 units of its Ergonomic Eyelash Curlers, due to a defect which resulted in consumer eye injuries.

The CPSC indicated that the eyelash curlers were produced in China and sold to consumers between January 2007 and April 2014.  Approximately 478,000 units were sold for $5 each through Avon’s web site and by Avon sales agents in the U.S. and about 42,000 were sold in Canada.

The curlers can break and expose a metal pin that poses an eye injury hazard to consumers, according to the agency.

According to the CPSC, the reports received by Avon regarding its defective eyelash curlers include incidents of the product’s spring breaking and of injuries requiring medical attention.

The CPSC advises consumers to stop using the product immediately and return it to Avon in exchange for a refund or a Mega Effects Mascara.
