DiscoveryNews: Jars Hint at Amelia Earhart as Castaway: Photos

I read online this creme was confiscated and destroyed (google doc) by the USDA for libelous packaging, in fact containing near 12% mercury. May 15, 1912 and ordered destroyed by the marshal. Perhaps however, the "retro" looking bottle was produced by the Owens Corning glass company for some pharmaceutical business that then produced another mixture, i.e., one that the FDA wouldn't be concerned with, which ended up in Amelia Earhart's "kit".  DiscoveryNews
