Gillette is recalling about 87,000 Venus Simply3 Disposable razors due to laceration and injury hazards.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, a problem during manufacturing resulted in the misalignment of the blades in the razors, posing a higher risk of cuts during normal use.
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.
