The Feds aren't just investigating investment giants these days--they've also set their sights on cosmetics companies.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced that it'll be probing companies that are manufacturing potentially harmful products without official approval.
B. Braun, Baxter, and Hospira--three brands that make eye washes that do not meet federal safety regulations--are currently under investigation after more than 300 patients suffered serious reactions, according to the Associated Press.
Check your skin cream labels for papain (papaya enzyme), because it's also considered suspect in the FDA's view; according to spokesperson Rita Chapelle, there are no approved versions of the stuff available on the market, even though it's pretty widely used. Complaints range from merely insufficient results to life-threatening allergic symptoms.
