Gillette recalls packages of Venus disposable razors

BOSTON -- Gillette is voluntarily recalling some of its razors because a misalignment of the blades pose a higher risk of cuts, according to the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission.

According to the recall report, roughly 90,000 packages of Venus Simply3 disposable razors were sold in the United States and Canada.

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.
