Direct link: http://www.recalls.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1050042

Additional information:
The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (“ACCC”) reports the following Nature Liquid Mineral Foundation Cosmetics are subject to this recall:

  • Nude by Nature Liquid Mineral Foundation in 30 mL bottles; batch numbers: B4126301, B4137406, B4127805, B4137407, B4137408, B4127809, B4127810, B4137409, B4137405

Depending on the organism(s) present or subsequently introduced into inadequately preserved cosmetic products, consumer safety may be placed at risk through serious infection.

About Cosmetic Safety:
Bacterial and/or viral infection can lead to serious and even life-changing injuries, especially if contaminated substances are used in or around the eyes, near mucus membranes or anywhere where an injury or cut has compromised the protective skin barrier or in the case of immunocompromised individuals, on thin skin surfaces.
