Claire’s has pulled some makeup products off the shelf after they were allegedly found to contain asbestos.
According to the Chicago Tribune, the mother of a child in Rhode Island had her daughter’s makeup sent to an independent lab for testing after becoming suspicious of the contents, which revealed the presence of tremolite asbestos.
The affected products allegedly include the Pink Glitter Cellphone Makeup Compact and Bedazzled Rainbow Heart Makeup Set.
Claire’s said that it is investigating the products and has hired an independent lab to run an analysis on them. It also said it would refund any concerned consumers and recalled certain products, releasing a list of items that can be found here: http://www.claires.com/us/product-and-safety.html
Asbestos Exposure Can Result in Mesothelioma
Asbestos exposure is taken seriously by the government and industrial producers because it has been linked to mesothelioma, colon cancer, stomach cancer, throat cancer and kidney cancer. It is always shocking to hear about product recalls relating to asbestos because it is highly regulated due to risks.
