Contaminated Cosmetics To Be Discussed By The FDA

Posted on November 30, 2011

According to recent health-related news articles, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration will hold a public meeting to address an increasing National concern with the microbiological safety of cosmetics sold across the country.

The reports reinforce that the FDA doesn’t have any jurisdiction over cosmetics approval but that a future oversight is allegedly necessary. There aren’t any regulations regarding the selling and distributing of cosmetic products in the books but the FDA hopes to eradicate this issue after the discussion reaches the community.

Serious health issues have been reported to be linked to contaminated cosmetics, especially with items that are designed for the eye area, according to the news. Infections related to tainted body lotions have also been accounted by the FDA official reports.

The agency hopes to make the conversation about microbiological safety in products designed to improve aesthetics a reality so cases of contaminated cosmetics will be a thing of the past.
