Kylie Jenner’s Lip Kit NOT Manufactured In “Sweat Shop,” Despite Report
Kylie Jenner’s new lip kit is NOT manufactured in a “sweat shop,” despite an inaccurate webloid report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this story. We’re told it’s “completely false.”
According to the repeatedly discredited RadarOnline, Spatz Laboratories in Oxnard, California, where Jenner’s lip gloss is produced, has unsanitary working conditions. But the webloid backs up its false claim by using a 2006 FDA inspection report and skewing its findings. A decade ago, the company was cited for having some missing statements in its production records, and equipment that was “not of appropriate design,” among a few other minor infractions that were immediately resolved.
In fact, Spatz Laboratories has never been cited for another violation since. It should also be noted, not a single one of those previously mentioned transgressions had anything to do with supposedly poor conditions for workers. Gossip Cop checked in with a source close to Jenner, who exclusively assures us the webloid’s allegations are “completely false.”
Additionally, Spatz Laboratories has released a statement to Gossip Cop to discredit the site’s claim. We’re told the company has “60 years of experience in manufacturing and has always maintained the highest level of standards according to United States labor laws.” Gossip Cop is further assured that Spatz Laboratories is an “equal opportunity employer that is committed to ensuring compliance of all federal and state laws as they apply to the fair treatment and the safe work environment of its team members.”
Furthermore, when the organization was last audited in 2015, it achieved the “highest standards and requirements as it relates to: Labor practices, health and safety, discrimination, discipline, harassment, compensation and hours of work.” Gossip Cop is also assured that Spatz Laboratories “takes the health, well being and success of our employees very serious and always committed to upholding the highest standards.”
Essentially, RadarOnline wanted to combine Jenner’s name and “sweat shop” into a sensationalized headline by citing minor violations from a decade-old inspection report. In addition, Spatz Laboratories’ infractions, at the time, had nothing to do with the treatment of its employees. The webloid’s entire account is simply a non-issue.
