World Famous branded Tattoo Ink – Warm Peach packaged in 30 ml (~one ounce) plastic bottles with a batch/lot designation of WFPRWP192502 but no listed barcode/EAN. This recall alert was submitted by Sweden to the EU Safety Gateway under alert number A12/01730/21.

These World Famous branded Tattoo Ink products are marketed, sold and delivered as pre-tinted tattoo inks suitable to subcutaneous placement in human skin for ornamental or identification purposes.

No EANs/barcodes, DINs, item numbers, best-before date codes, model numbers, manufacturing date codes, 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 World Famous branded Tattoo Ink products include the reported finding that the Tattoo Ink product contains Aromatic Amines 4-methyl-m-phenylenediamine (measured value 7.1. mg/kg/0.00071%). When a product such as this is in direct and prolonged contact with the skin such as is the case with a skin tattoo, the Aromatic Amine may be absorbed by the skin and surrounding tissues. Aromatic Amines are suspected of causing Cancer, cell mutations and detrimentally affect human reproduction.

As a consequence, a person who utilizes any of the recalled World Famous branded Tattoo Inks in a reasonable manner expected with its intended design and anticipated use may experience cellular damage, mutagenic damage and long-term reproductive damage.

United Nations | World Health Organization___________________________________________________________

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 or sensitising properties should neither be present in Tattoos and Permanent Makeup products nor released from azo-colourants.

Due to these defects, these World Famous branded Tattoo Inks do not reportedly comply with Europe’s safety standards for use as a chemical tattoo ink.

As a result of these reported defects, a recall of the listed World Famous branded Tattoo Inks from end users in the European marketplace has been ordered.
