Japan-based cosmetics company Kanebo announced it is recalling 54 skin-whitening products across Asia following complaints they are causing discoloration that persists even after consumers had stopped using them. There had been 39 complaints from customers in Japan, a company spokesman said. According to the company, the products contain 4HPB, a synthetic version of a natural compound developed by Kanebo. Covering 4.36 million products shipped in Japan and 370,000 in overseas markets, including Taiwan, Hong Kong, South Korea, and the Philippines, the recall will include 450,000 products already sold to consumers.
