Earlier today, MGA Entertainment announced the recall of Bratz Makeup Design Sketch Books. The products were recalled because they pose a risk for a staph infection to consumers. In total, the recall affects 6,200 Bratz Makeup Design Sketch Books. As a Fort Lauderdale Products Liability Injury Lawyer, this recall, much like any recall that concerns children’s products, has the potential to be quite alarming. We never want to expose our children to any dangerous substances or chemicals, which is why the FDA works to ensure that unsafe products are removed from the shelves.
According to the FDA MGA Entertainment Bratz Recall Release, the recall affects products manufactured from November 5, 2010 to February 25, 2011. As a Fort Lauderdale Injury Lawyer, I am pleased to say that there haven’t been any reports of infections caused by the recalled Bratz products. It would be a great victory if this recall can be completed without any children suffering injuries or illnesses.
As reported in the FDA Release, there were elevated levels of bacteria found in the eye shadow of the recalled Bratz Makeup Design Sketch Books. It is not known how this contamination occurred or whether it stems from a third party supplier. Hopefully this recall will prompt an investigation into that matter and lead to improved safety procedures for the company.
