Cosmetic products ordered off shelves over asbestos

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on Saturday ordered two types of cosmetic products manufactured by Tainan-based TJ Group off shelves nationwide after they were found to contain asbestos.

The order came after US and Canadian authorities on July 3 informed the agency that five foreign-branded beauty products sold in those countries that were found to contain asbestos were made by a contract manufacturer in Taiwan.
