May 15, 2014 — Avon Products Inc. has announced a recall for the Ergonomic Eyelash Curler because it can break and expose a metal pin that can cause an eye injury.
The Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) says it has received 24 reports of the eyelash curler breaking, including 6 reports of the spring breaking. At least 13 people were injured, including three who needed medical treatment.
The recall includes about 478,000 eyelash curlers sold in the United States and 41,795 in Canada. According to the CPSC:
“This recall involves an Avon Ergonomic Eyelash Curler which is silver with black ergonomic finger grips. The word Avon is engraved in the silver upper lash curling bar. The recalled curler has the Avon model number F3093441 which can be found on the product’s box.”
The eyelash curlers were sold from January 2007 until April 2014 for about $5, online at www.avon.com and by independent sales representatives.
Avon recommends that customers immediately stop using the recalled eyelash curler. They can return it to Avon for either a refund or a Mega Effects Mascara.
