Mexican Beauty Products Could Be Deadly
If you are a fan of some Mexican beauty creams, you need to read this article because it could save your life, and no, I'm not trying to scare you - this is serious.
The creams are called "Crema Antiedad y Desmanchadora" and "Crema Aguamary", and they contain a HUUUGGGGE amount of mercury. The US FDA allows one part per million of mercury in creams in this country - the Mexican creams have 130 THOUSAND parts per million! Six people have already gotten sick here in El Paso from the creams, and 44 others in Texas have gotten sick as well.
Officials say it's best to throw the creams away, but because they are so toxic, you need to be careful handling them. Call the Texas Poison Control at 800-222-1222 to find out how you can safely get rid of the creams.
