CPSC, Sassi America Inc. Announce Recall of Acrylic Primer for Nail Care

WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Sassi America Inc., of Elk Grove Village, Ill., is voluntarily recalling about 72,000 bottles of acrylic primer used to prepare fingernails before applying artificial nails. This methacrylic acid primer is not packaged in child-resistant packaging, as required by the Poison Prevention Packaging Act.

Sassi America has received a report of a 2-year-old girl in Pompano Beach, Fla., who sustained severe external and internal chemical burns after swallowing the liquid primer.

The primer is packaged in amber-colored bottles with black caps. The model number 508, 509, 510, 511 or 512 is written on the front of the label. "SASSI" also is written on the labels. The primer was sold in .25-ounce, .50-ounce, 1-ounce, 2-ounce and 4-ounce size bottles. The acrylic primers were sold separately and in kits.

Grocery and beauty supply stores nationwide sold the primer from June 2000 through January 2004 for between $2 and $10.

Consumers should return the acrylic primer and kits to the store where purchased to receive a refund. For more information call Sassi collect at (847) 228-0334 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. CT Monday through Friday.
