reports that a group known as Breast Cancer Action
wants the perfume pulled from store shelves.
Karuna Jagger, the Executive Director of the group, decided to have the perfume scientifically tested over safety concerns after the perfume debuted earlier this year. Surprisingly, it was discovered that the perfume contained ingredients that have been linked to causing breast cancer. These questionable substances in the perfume are not even listed on its label.
According to CBS San Francisco
, when representatives at Susan G. Komen for the Cure
were notified of the findings, they issued a rather confusing response. On one hand, they defend themselves and state that all ingredients were tested for safety prior to the manufacturing of the product. On the other hand, they say they will be working to reformulate the perfume to eliminate any concerns.
Major retailers, such as Target
, are known to carry the perfume. It can also be purchased on sites like Amazon
. No official word yet on when or if the perfume's sales will be halted.
