Modere Liquid foundation recalled over bacterial contamination

Modere has issued a voluntary recall of their mineral liquid foundation after it was revealed the makeup contained an “unacceptable level of bacterial contamination.”

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission alerted customers to the recall in a notice on their website on Tuesday.

In the post, the ACCC said “bacterial contamination can cause infection and may cause vomiting in some users.”


The affected foundation was available for sale both nationally and internationally between 11 February 2017 – 18 May 2018.


“Consumers should cease using the product,” the ACCC advised.

“Return all affected products to Modere, along with the completed response form using the prepaid address provided. On receipt of the return, Modere will provide a full refund.”
