Tattoo inks recalled due to fears of contamination

Posted on August 6, 2015 9:12 am under Product Liability

Fears of serious injuries due to microbiological contamination prompt Florida-based A Thousand Virgins Corp. to recall all lots of A Thousand Virgins Grey Wash System tattoo inks, according to a report by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Tuesday, August 4.

A laboratory testing conducted by the FDA found that the inks might be contaminated with Microbacterium organisms, Mycobacterium chelonae, and several other pathogens that may cause serious adverse effects, including potentially fatal sepsis. Contaminated tattoo inks have Lot No. 129 and an Expiration Date of 01/16. The products were made available nationwide in grey color shades G1, G2 and G3 in 2 oz and 4 oz bottles.

Being harmed by contaminated products such as these may not only cause physical and financial damages, but may ultimately result in tragic deaths.
