Gillette recalled its Venus Simply3 Disposable razors Thursday due to laceration and injury hazards.

The company says "a problem during manufacturing resulted in the misalignment of the blades in the razors, posing a higher risk of cuts during normal use."

Here is the product description:

This recall involves Venus Simply3 disposable razors. The razors come in pink, purple, and yellow colors and were sold in two types of packages: a Venus Simply3 Disposable Razor 4-pack and a Daisy 12+1 Venus Simply3 Bonus Pack which included one free Venus Simply3 razor. The ten digit lot code can be found on the right or left side of the plastic package. The UPC number can be found inside the package adjacent to the bar code.

About 87,000 units were in the U.S. and Canada at food, drug and mass merchandise stores from January 2019 through May 2019 for between $6 and $10.

Gillette received one report of a consumer who was cut while using the recalled razor.
