KENNER, La. (WVUE) – A cargo of 1000’s of pretend eyelashes was seized from a DHL delivery terminal at the New Orleans International Airport in Kenner, in accordance to U.S. Customs.
On July 6, officers held a shipment of “synthetic eyelash sample” for an examination.
The shipment was destined for a natural beauty source store in New Orleans and integrated 4 packing containers of bogus eyelashes, totaling 3,000 pairs of eyelashes.
Officials say the item unsuccessful to point out the title and spot of organization of the company, and an precise statement of the quantity of contents, which violated Food and drug administration polices.
“In general, Fda considers fake eyelashes, eyelash extensions, and their adhesives to be cosmetic solutions, and as such they need to adhere to the basic safety and labeling specifications for cosmetics. Wrong eyelashes and eyelash extensions require adhesives to maintain them in location. Eyelids are fragile, and an allergic response, irritation, or other harm in the eye region can be notably troublesome,” U.S. Customs explained in a assertion.
Unlabeled, non-Food and drug administration-approved faux lashes are frequently seized at the New Orleans ports, but officers say this was a “particularly large” shipment.
Officials urge you to check the packaging of bogus eyelashes ahead of you invest in to see if there is a producer labeled on it, and to check with the seller if they are Fda authorised.
