Claire’s Stores has announced the voluntary recall of three make-up products that could potentially contain asbestos fibres, as found following testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The three products, Claire’s Eye Shadows, Claire’s Compact Powder and Claire’s Contour Palette, have now been removed from stores and online with consumers being asked to return the items to store for a full refund.
According to a company statement, “To date, Claire’s is not aware of any adverse reactions, injuries or illness caused by the possible presence of asbestos in the recalled products. Claire’s continues to have confidence in the safety and composition of its products and is taking these actions out of an abundance of caution. We are working with FDA to ensure the agency and our customers share that confidence.
“Claire’s understands many parents trust and expect us to hold the cosmetics purchased by and for their children to the highest possible safety standards. In the last year, Claire’s switched to talc-free manufacturing for all its cosmetics.”
