Dangerous product from Avon poses eye injury risk

Women who use makeup tools as part of the process for putting on makeup are placing trust in the company that manufactures the tool, as well as the company that sells the tool. A recent recall by Avon shows that this trust is sometimes broken. When that happens, injury can occur. Women who use Avon eyelash curlers in Washington, District of Columbia, might be interested in reading about this recall.

The company has issued a recall for approximately 478,000 Avon Ergonomic Eyelash Curler models. The defective product might break while it is being used. If it breaks, a metal rod becomes exposed that can cause an eye injury.

There have been 13 reports of injuries caused by the defective product. Of those, three people had to seek medical attention. Anyone who has one of these eyelash curlers is warned to stop using the dangerous product immediately.

If you still have the box, look for product number F3093441 on it to see if your eyelash curler is part of the recall. If you don't have the box, the eyelash curler can be identified by looking for black finger grips on a silver frame and the word "Avon" engraved on the upper lash bar.

Avon is offering either a Mega Effects Mascara or a refund, but consumers must send in the dangerous product. Anyone who has already been injured by one of these recalled eyelash curlers might have medical bills and other expenses mounting up. Those expenses might be causing financial struggles.

Being injured by a dangerous product is never acceptable. Anyone who has suffered an injury might be able to seek compensation for those injuries and related damages.
