P&G recalls 10 shades of Clairol Natural Instincts

Affects products sold in U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico

CINCINNATI — Procter & Gamble has announced a voluntary recall of 10 shades of its Clairol Natural Instincts in the United States, Canada and Puerto Rico because of a mismatched ColorFresh! Revitalizer sachet in the kits that may create an unwanted color result.

The ColorFresh! Revitalizer gives consumers a boost of color two weeks after the initial coloring. Consumers with one of the impacted sachets can still use everything else in the kit, including the main colorant and color conditioning treatment, but should discard the ColorFresh! Revitalizer sachet, P&G stated.

The following shades are affected:

  • Natural Instincts shade 16 light auburn (Spiced Tea);

  • Natural Instincts shade 35 brown black (Ebony Mocha);

  • Natural Instincts creme shade 03G light golden blonde (Honey Creme);

  • Natural Instincts creme shade 7.5 dark blonde (Maple Creme);

  • Natural Instincts creme shade 21G medium golden brown (Caramel Creme);

  • Natural Instincts creme shade 23R medium auburn (Raspberry Creme);

  • Natural Instincts creme shade 30R dark auburn (Cherry Creme);

  • Natural Instincts creme shade 31 darkest brown (Coffee Creme);

  • Natural Instincts vibrant shade 9 natural light blonde (Blonde Vibrance); and

  • Natural Instincts vibrant shade 10 extra light blonde (Sun-Kissed Blonde).

P&G is removing the products in question from store shelves and has informed regulatory authorities in the affected countries.
