The Gillette Company of Boston, Mass., is recalling about 90,000 Venus Simply3 disposable razors sold in the U.S. and Canada.
A problem during manufacturing resulted in the misalignment of the blades in the razors, posing a higher risk of cuts during normal use.
The firm has received one report of a consumer who was cut while using the recalled razor.
This recall involves Venus Simply3 disposable razors.
The razors come in pink, purple, and yellow colors and were sold in two types of packages: a Venus Simply3 Disposable Razor 4-pack and a Daisy 12+1 Venus Simply3 Bonus Pack which included one free Venus Simply3 razor.
The ten digit lot code can be found on the right or left side of the plastic package. The UPC number can be found inside the package adjacent to the bar code.
The razors, manufactured in Mexico, were sold at food, drug, and mass merchandise stores nationwide from January 2019, through May 2019, for between $6 and $10.
What to do
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled Venus Simply3 razors and contact Gillette to receive a postage-paid return label to return the razors and receive a voucher for a replacement.
Consumers may contact Gillette at (800) 362-1258 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. (ET) Monday through Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (ET) Saturday & Sunday, or online at www.gillettevenus.com and click on “Safety Notification” at the top of the page for more information.
