Kylie cosmetics is down 2.5% on Wednesday after the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a settlement with the company over a recall of its cosmetics and makeup.
The company said in a statement it had reached a settlement to resolve a complaint with the U,S.
agency, which said that in April 2015, a supplier of some of its products contaminated with botulism toxin had improperly handled a batch of the cosmetics and formulated it as if it were not contaminated.
The agency said the company was required to take “appropriate steps” to improve its supply chain and prevent the release of other products containing botulisms.
It is the second time in the past three years that the FTC has issued a warning about a cosmetics supplier.
The agency in April 2017 accused a company in Germany of failing to properly handle a batch containing botulinum toxin, which is the most commonly used of several types of toxin produced by the bacteria that causes botulitis.
The FTC said it has received nearly 800,000 complaints since it was launched in 2010.
Kylie said it is working to resolve the issue with the FDA.
The cosmetics company said the recall affected only certain product lines and that it is continuing to provide full support to the affected consumer.
“We are deeply sorry to those who were affected, and our team continues to provide them with all the support they need to recover from this event,” it said.
Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 2 collection is the latest in a string of controversies surrounding Kylie products.
The retailer has faced a slew of lawsuits, including one filed by the U of T professor Michael Hern, who claims he was poisoned after a visit to a Korean-owned store in April.
Hern’s lawsuit said the stores he visited, in Toronto and London, Canada, contained samples of his product without his permission.
The U.K. and Canada are also suing Kylie over a similar allegation that it improperly used a banned pesticide in a fashion that could have caused cancer in lab mice.
The U.T. professor, who has not yet been diagnosed with cancer, said he spent about a week in the Korea in April of 2015.
He said he was told that his samples had not been tested.
He later received a letter from Kylie informing him that it was recalling the products he purchased from stores in London and Toronto.
He is seeking unspecified damages for his ordeal.
