Neutrogena recalls Light Therapy Masks over eye injury fears

Skin care company Neutrogena has recalled its popular Light Therapy Masks citing concerns over potential eye injury risks.

The masks, made popular through a plethora of social media posts as well as celebrity endorsements, were recalled under an ‘abundance of caution’ with the product said to be safe when used just once a day, as recommended. 

The company issued a statement that read, “For a small subset of the population with certain underlying eye conditions, as well as for users taking medications which could enhance ocular photosensitivity, there is a theoretical risk of eye injury.”

Taking to its website, Neutrogena has advised consumers to stop using the product and seek advice from a medical professional should injury occur. Purchasers of the masks are also able to receive a full refund from the company.
