FDA: 6 air fresheners may be bad for your health.
THE FOOD and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning against six air fresheners being sold in the market, saying these may be hazardous to health.
In an advisory, the FDA said the products violated Administrative Order No. 311 issued in 1977, or the Labeling Requirements of Hazardous Substances.
The FDA identified the products as Die Zhuang Jasmine Perfume Air Freshener (470ml green pressurized can), Die Zhuang Lemon Perfume Air Freshener (470ml yellow pressurized can), Stick On Car Air Freshener Lavender (35g plastic jar), Wanjia Air Freshener Lemon (2x60g yellow plastic jar enclosed in cardboard packaging material), Wanjia Air Freshener Jasmine (60g plastic jar with green cap), and Wanjia Air Freshener Lavender (60g purple plastic jar).
It ordered its field regulatory operations officers to seize these products as it advised the public not to buy items which do not come with instructions either in English or in local dialects such as Tagalog, Cebuano and Ilokano.
'The product label should contain the name and place of business of the manufacturer, packer, distributor, the common or chemical name, the word 'danger' for products that are extremely flammable, corrosive or highly toxic, and the words 'warning' or 'caution' for other hazardous substances,' the FDA said.
