Meranini branded Tretinoin Gel USP, packaged in 20 gram metal tubes and sleeved in a white cardboard box with a strength rated as A-Ret Gel 0.05%. This recall alert was submitted by Hungary to the EU Safety Gateway.

These Meranini branded Tretinoin Gel products are marketed, sold and delivered by Menarini Pharma Pvt. Ltd. as an anti-wrinkle application used to cosmetically remove the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, age spots and minor sun damage.

No EANs/barcodes, UPCs, DINs, item numbers, best-before date codes, model numbers, manufacturing date codes, batch/lot designations, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification.

The type of hazards presented in these recalled Meranini branded Tretinoin Gel USP products include the reported finding that the stated ingredients of the recalled Gel contains Retinoic Acid (Tretinoin), which should only be prescribed by and used under careful supervision of a licensed physician. Consequently, Retinoic Acid (Tretinoin) is prohibited in over-the-counter (“OTC”) cosmetic products within the European Community.

According to the European Union, Retinoic Acid is teratogenic agent in that it is a chemical, physical or other identifiable constituent factor capable of causing birth defects. Teratogenic agents can lead to Embryopathy and adversely affect and/or kill an unborn child when utilizing the product in a reasonable manner expected with its intended design and anticipated use.

Due to these defects, these Meranini branded Tretinoin Gel USP products do not reportedly comply with the European health and safety requirements as specified by the Cosmetic Products Regulation.

As a result of these reported defects, a recall of these Meranini branded Tretinoin Gel cosmetics, a ban on the marketing and sale of these products as well as a withdrawal of the products from the European marketplace has been ordered.
