Additional information:

Among the 34 recalls the European Union has announced in its fourth report of June 2017, the following notification was made:

Crest Whitestrip Recall [EU Report 25/2017]Crest 3D White Whitestrips Supreme Flexfit tooth whitening strips. The recalled cosmetic dental strips are sold with a batch/lot code of (L)6225V44 and a UPC of 8971400046.

The type of hazard presented by these tooth whitening strips include skin irritation caused by the bleaching chemical Hydrogen Peroxide, a bleaching agent, at concentrations higher than allowable limits for non-professional application. Specifically, these tooth whitening strips contain Hydrogen Peroxide at a measured concentration up to 10% by weight, a chemical concentration in excess of what is generally considered safe for home use.

Because of this defect, the recalled whitening strips may cause skin irritation and potential harm if swallowed and do not comply with the requirements of the EU’s Cosmetic Products Regulation. As such, therefore, the European Union is warning consumers of the risks involved with using this product in a non-clinical setting and urges caution with these types of products.
