INTENZE branded Tattoo Ink sold in Lime Green colour with a product code of INT050-1, a batch/lot designation of SS274 but with no EAN/UPC listed.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Tattoo Ink products include both Chemical and Carcinogenic injury, both serious health and safety hazards.

Specifically, the EU reports this product contains contains the Aromatic Amines, O-Anisidine (measured value: 3 mg/kg) and O-Toluidine (measured value: 21 mg/kg). These Aromatic Amines are suspected of causing various forms of Cancer in humans, malignant cell mutation and detrimentally affect human reproduction.

Importantly, the Council of Europe Resolution ResAP (2008)1 on requirements and criteria for the safety of tattoos and permanent make-up, recommends that Aromatic Amines with Carcinogenic, Mutagenic, Reprotoxic and/or Sensitising properties should not be present in tattoos and permanent make-up products nor released from Azo-Colourants.

Due to these defects and their associated risks, these INTENZE branded Tattoo Ink products do not comply with the requirements of the EU Cosmetic Products Regulation.

Consequently, a recall of these products from European end users has been ordered.
