Greater federal regulation of beauty products proposed

Many dangers can lurk in your home. These dangers include consumer goods you bring into your home and use every day, such as beauty products.

There are a variety of ways a beauty product can expose a person to danger. For one, defects could cause these products to malfunction in a way that could cause injury. Also, such products can be dangerous if they are contaminated or contain certain chemicals.

When a person is harmed by an unsafe beauty product, they may have grounds to bring a product liability claim against the product's manufacturer. Pursuing such a claim can be a complex process involving many issues and steps, so it is important for anyone considering this type of claim to promptly obtain the guidance of a skilled product liability attorney.

Federal regulation of the safety of these products can vary greatly. Currently, most beauty products are subject to fairly little in the way of federal regulation. A bill recently proposed in Congress could change this.

The bill would give the U.S. Food and Drug Administration a range of new regulatory authority and mandates related to such products. For example, it would give the agency the power to order recalls in relation to beauty products of questionable safety. The bill is reportedly aimed at protecting consumer health. If it ends up passing, it may eventually impact the overall safety of the beauty products typically found in people's homes.
