Claire’s Make-Up Recall Due To Asbestos
If your kids purchased cosmetics from the popular tween store Claire's in the past few years, you might want to have them double check what's in their make-up stash. The retail shop just announced a voluntary recall of 3 of their make-up products, sold between October 2016 and March 2019, because the FDA found trace amounts of asbestos in it. Asbestos can pose a serious health risk to those who are exposed to it.
In a press release, Claire's Stores, Inc. stated that the products in question have been pulled from store shelves, but they advise customers to check what they have at home. The 3 products of concern are Claire's eye-shadow, a compact and a contouring palette (pictured below). For specific skew numbers and information, you can click here.
Claire's representatives say they are not aware of anyone being adversely affected by these products, and have issued the recall as a precaution. If you do have any of these cosmetics, they suggest you stop using them, and return them to Claire's stores for a full refund.
