Detroit Urban Craft Fair

I contacted the Detroit Urban Craft Fair. GlitterSniffer Cosmetics had participated in the fair in the past few years.

I emailed them and provided a brief outline of the recall, a link to the recall information, and asked that they help publicize it so that people who may have bought recalled products could be made aware.

2/1/11 ETA: Here is the text now posted to Handmade Detroit alerting people to the recall:

It’s come to our attention that Glittersniffer Cosmetics, a past participant in the Detroit Urban Craft Fair 2008 and 2009 and Maker Faire Detroit in 2010, has issued a recall as of Dec. 24th, 2010, for some of the company’s products, due to FDA regulations. Handmade Detroit’s only affiliation with Glittersniffer Cosmetics is that of a vendor – Handmade Detroit has never received any profit from this vendor’s sales. As a courtesy to our event shoppers, we wanted to share this information with the community.
If you’ve purchased some of these products between 2006-2010, you can find a list of recalled products and information on how to request a refund here. If you need any assistance contacting Glittersniffer Cosmetics or have additional questions, please e-mail the Handmade Detroit team at media [at] handmadedetroit [dot]com.
