MEDIA NOTIFICATION

Voluntary Product Recall Imperial Leather Talcum Powder (Made In Indonesia)

Thursday, August 30….Cussons Pty. Ltd. has today announced a voluntary product recall of all current stock of Imperial Leather Talcum powder that is marked "Made in Indonesia”.

The product comes in four varieties - Family Fresh, Fresh Bouquet, Fresh Mist and Cologne Fresh - and is sold in supermarkets and pharmacies throughout New Zealand.

A low level of microbiological contamination in Imperial Leather talc made in Indonesia has been detected. The levels are low, however Cussons is concerned that certain types of bacteria have been found that should not be present.

Whilst Cussons is not aware of the presence of any harmful microorganism, it is not prepared to take any risk with consumer health. There is an extremely low risk that the use of this talc on areas with sores, open wounds or broken skin could cause a serious infection.

Cussons has ceased importing from Indonesia and has informed clients and relevant state and federal government agencies of the product recall.

Customers are advised that a consumer hotline has been established to deal with any inquiries about the recall. The hotline number is 0800 651 651.

Customers are also advised they should return the product to:

Cussons (New Zealand) Pty Limited
7-9 Niall Burgess Road
Mt Wellington
Auckland

Cussons will refund in full both the recommended retail price and the cost of postage. Customers are advised to dispose of any remaining product by emptying the contents in a bin or other refuse, if they choose not to return it to Cussons. For specific advice on disposal, please call the free call number.

Cussons regrets any inconvenience this recall causes, and thanks its customers for their loyalty and co-operation.
