• Claire's recalls makeup over Asbestos concerns

    By: Macy Corica


    Jewelry and cosmetics store Claire’s is recalling some of its makeup over asbestos concerns. 

    The recall comes after a Rhode Island mother sent her 6-year-old’s glitter makeup kit out for testing. The kit was found to contain asbestos. Exposure to asbestos has been linked to mesothelioma, an aggressive and deadly form of cancer.

    The mother, who works for a law firm that handles cases involving contaminated cosmetics, and her boss decided to buy additional kits from nine different states, according to WJAR. Those all came back with the same results.

    Claire’s launched an investigation and after having the products tested, the company announced it has stopped the sales of the products and is issuing full refunds to customers.
