[Real-time news/comprehensive report]The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) recently seized 3,000 pairs of false eyelashes illegally imported from China at New Orleans Airport, and they have been seized and sent for inspection. .

According to comprehensive foreign media reports, CBP spokesperson Matthew Dyman pointed out that 4 boxes of false eyelashes illegally imported from China arrived at Louis Armstrong International Airport in New Orleans on the 6th and were expected to be delivered to a local beauty shop.

According to reports, these false eyelashes are not labeled with the name of the manufacturer or distributor, and they have not been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), which means that the authorities cannot determine whether the product has been exposed to a source of infection during the manufacturing process. , Or whether the finished product is improperly stored in an environment suffering from pests.

CBP mentioned in the statement that the FDA lists false eyelashes, eyelash extensions and their adhesives as cosmetic products, so these products must comply with the safety and labeling regulations related to cosmetics. Especially because the eyelids are quite fragile, unsupervised or suspicious materials may cause allergies and irritation in the eyes and surrounding areas.

The report pointed out that New Orleans often seized false eyelash products that were not labelled and not approved by the FDA, but the authorities stated that the volume of the goods that arrived on the 6th was “extraordinarily large.”
