A national retailer has recalled a line of children’s makeup due to asbestos contamination. Claire’s issued a recall of nine makeup products on Saturday following news reports the products were tainted.
The recall comes after a mother in Rhode Island had her daughter’s glitter makeup sent to an independent laboratory in North Carolina. The mother was concerned about the ingredients in her child’s makeup kit. According to reports, testing at the lab found traces of asbestos in the makeup.
Claire’s issued a statement on their website regarding the recall. The company’s statement says they will be performing their own investigation into the matter. The company is also offering full refunds to customers who purchased the products in question.
The products in question are sold at Claire’s stores nationwide. They include: Ultimate Mega Makeup Set code 71844, Metallic Hot Pink Glitter 48 Piece Makeup set code 76094, Pink Glitter Cellphone Makeup Compact Code 26556, Bedazzled Rainbow Heart Makeup Set code 11767, Rainbow Bedazzled Star Makeup set code 20926, Rainbow Glitter Heart Shaped Makeup set code 97275, Mint Glitter Makeup set code 74769, Rainbow Bedazzled Rectangle Makeup set code 21044, and Pink Glitter Palette with Eyeshadow and Lip Gloss code 97276.
