Claire's Has Recalled 9 Makeup Products That Might Be Contaminated with Asbestos

The retailer specialises in children's cosmetics and accessories and tweeted the warning after the set in the USA was reportedly found to have traces of the substance.

"Out of an abundance of caution, additional testing is underway", the company said in its Friday statement.

NBC reports that a mother of a six-year-old child sent one of the kits off to be independently tested and received the results back confirming that the product contained tremolite asbestos. "We have also confirmed that the talcum ingredient supply is from a certified asbestos free European vendor.We will continue to honor returns for any customers remaining uncomfortable".

She said she was already working with a lab on another case and chose to have her daughter's makeup tested.

Claire's is investigating the asbestos concerns, but the issue obviously isn't good news for the already struggling company. According to lab results from the Scientific Analytical Institute in North Carolina, the glitter makeup tested positive for asbestos.

The company posted a statement on their Twitter account Saturday afternoon, saying they would be pulling the products as a "precautionary measure" while they conduct their own investigation into the claims.

She tested 17 other makeup products purchased from Claire's stores across nine states to determine if it was a widespread problem.

Exposure to asbestos has been found to lead to certain types of cancers and tumors on internal organs.

INDIANAPOLIS - Popular children's retailer Claire's has pulled several make-up kits from their shelves after a report claiming kits from several different cities tested positive for asbestos.

Although mesothelioma diagnoses are most common in people who have been exposed to asbestos in an occupational setting, there have also been a number of mesothelioma cases linked to asbestos-containing consumer products over the years.

The kit was sent for a lab test and came out positive for asbestos, a cancer causing substance. "Once we have more information and have the results of the investigation we will take the necessary action".
