LVMH Perfumes and Cosmetics USA

A lawsuit has been filed and is seeking class action status against the lipstick makers claiming the product contains excess levels of lead. The lawsuit claims LVMH Perfumes and Cosmetics USA knew or should have known that its Christian Dior "Addict Positive Red" lipstick had dangerous levels of lead and that the company failed to list lead as an ingredient.

In October 2007, the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics made public a report which showed LVMH's lipstick products contain dangerous levels of lead. The tests conducted revealed that LVMH's Christian Dior 'Addict Positive Red' contained lead in the amount of .21 parts per million, which is more than twice the accepted level of lead for products that are ingested.

A typical woman can inadvertently ingest approximately four pounds of lipstick. The suit seeks reimbursement of the purchase price of the lipstick and diagnostic testing to detect lead poisoning.

LVMH is an acronym for Louis Vuitton Moet Hennessy and is an American subsidiary of a French parent corporation.
