The Brazilian Blowout blowup continues!
Product tests have revealed extremely high levels of formaldehyde, a cancer-causing chemical, in some Brazilian Blowout products (even those labeled “formaldehyde-free”), but the company still insists its products are safe. (All the salon workers and clients who've reported nose bleeds, dizziness, rashes and hair loss might beg to differ.)
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has finally told Brazilian Blowout it needs to clean up its act. In a letter to Brazilian Blowout dated August 22, 2011, the FDA noted that the products are “adulterated” and "misbranded." Yet salons continue to use the products and unsuspecting hair stylists and customers continue to be exposed to the formaldehyde in them.
We clearly need more protection than a warning letter can offer!
Please join us in asking the FDA to protect salon workers and customers from this unnecessary toxic exposure by issuing a voluntary recall! (Unfortunately, FDA doesn’t have the power to order a mandatory recall due to our outdated cosmetics laws.) Just personalize the message below; we'll deliver it to Dr. Linda Katz, Director for the FDA's Office of Cosmetics and Colors.
