Consumers Seek Recall of Brazilian Blowout

It sounds like a World Cup Soccer match result, but in fact, Brazilian Blowout is a hair-straightening product. And thanks to a wave of unpleasant responses to its use, the FDA has issued a warning letter to its manufacture.

According to AboutLawsuits.com, formaldehyde is classified as a probable carcinogen by the EPA and is considered a known carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
