The primary hair colorant is not affected, the company said, and that all of the products contained in the kit remain safe to use. P&G is removing the products from store shelves and has informed regulatory authorities in the affected countries. The shades affected in the recall include Light Auburn (Spiced Tea), Brown Black (Ebony Mocha), Light Golden Blonde (Honey Creme), Dark Blonde (Maple Creme), Medium Golden Brown (Caramel Creme), Medium Auburn (Raspberry Creme), Dark Auburn (Cherry Creme), Darkest Brown (Coffee Creme), Natural Light Blonde (Blonde Vibrance) and Extra Light Blonde (Sun-Kissed Blonde).
