Thank you for bringing this report about Gillette Venus to our attention. We’re sorry to learn of our consumer’s experience. Please know nothing is more important to us than the safety of our consumers, and we take reports of this nature seriously. Venus products are manufactured under stringent quality control procedures to help ensure their quality and performance. We maintain an ongoing monitoring program for quality and safety because the safe use of our products is always our highest priority. The information you provided is important to our ongoing efforts to maintain high standards, and it has been shared with our Quality Assurance (QA) Team and with our P&G Safety Team.

Be assured that we strive to ensure all consumers have the best possible experience with our products and our priority is the safety and confidence of the millions of women who trust us with their personal care needs. To that end, we’re disappointed to share that a temporary manufacturing issue resulted in a very small number of Venus Simply3 disposable razors being released which are more likely to cut during normal use; no other Venus products are affected.
