Bus/Financial - Manufacturing / CLASSIFICATION DES DEFAUTS
French term or phrase: mélange de référence
Hello,
I'm translating some product specifications intended for suppliers of different types of "PLV" (POS displays) to a major French cosmetics firm.
This appears in a section called "CLASSIFICATION DES DEFAUTS". The section lists the different categories of defects. Here's one of the categories (containing the term I don't quite understand):

III.2.1. Défaut rédhibitoire - NQA : 0
Pièce présentant un danger pour l’utilisateur (qu’il soit personnel GUERLAIN ou utilisateur final).
Pièce présentant un risque de **mélange de référence**.
Lors d’un contrôle statistique à réception, le lot fait l’objet d’un rejet quelle que soit la quantité observée.
Si le défaut est constaté lors du conditionnement, sans qu’il soit imputable aux opérations mises en œuvre, le lot peut également faire l’objet d’un rejet.

Thanks for any help you can give.
