Safety Notices from Feb 2015 - April 2017
 
This document contains a list of safety notices relating to cosmetic products which have been found on the EU market that may possibly pose a risk to human health. The list includes all notices published since September 2013. Each month this list is updated with any new notifications which have been received through the RAPEX system.

The HSE, along with the HPRA, monitors for the presence of these products (or specific batches of the products listed) on the Irish market. To date, in the vast majority of cases, there is no evidence to suggest the impacted products or batches of products were supplied to the Irish market.

If the product is found appropriate warnings concerning safe use may be placed on the packaging or at point of sale. Alternatively, the product may need to be withdrawn from the market. Where necessary, further information for consumers and economic operators in respect of such products will be published by the HPRA.

What to do if you find a product/batch that is included on this list?
Please complete the consumer alert form available on the HPRA website and notify the HPRA Healthcare Products Distribution Section.
