Gillette has recalled its Venus Simply3 disposable razors due to laceration and injury hazards.
The recall includes about 87,000 units.
The company reports the razor recall was due to a manufacturing issue that resulted in the misalignment of blades in the razor causing a higher risk for cuts during normal use.
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.

9003A17400 and 9007A17400
|Daisy 12 + 1 Venus Simply3 razors||Lot number: 9009A17400
Stores sold this product nationwide from January 2019 through May 2019 for between $6 and $10.
Gillette has received one report of a consumer who was cut while using the recalled razor.
Consumers should stop using the recalled razors and contact Gillette to receive a postage-paid return label to return the razors and receive a voucher for a replacement.
