Are Shavers Banned From Amenity Kits?

Are shavers banned from amenity kits?
I saw a men take out his shavers and
throwing them into trash at security
check points.(I think it was CNN) I have
not flown on overseas flights yet since WTC. Those disposable shavers are in
almost all the F/C-class amenity kits I've
gotten in the past... Are the airlines
taking them out? Does anyone know if
electric shavers are allowed or not?

The ones with removeable complete razor-blades, at LHR's Terminal 2 I noticed that these have been removed from the shelves of a chemists.
All this really means is that certain sharp objects have to go in your luggage in the hold, rather than carry-on hand baggage.

If that's the case then no glass bottles (available from airline drink trolleys, Duty Free shops, etc.) or anything along those lines should be allowed on board. A broken bottle can do as much harm as a knife or razor blade.
