Claire's testing products after reports of asbestos found in makeup

"At Claire's the safety of our customers is of paramount importance, and we are passionate about the safety and integrity of our products". Out of an abundance of caution, additional testing is underway.

The company's decision to pull product comes after WJAR-TV in Rhode Island broke a story on Friday, claiming a mother had sent her daughter's product off to a private lab to be tested and it came back positive for tremolite asbestos, which is a toxic, cancer-causing material.

If you bought someone in your life makeup from Claire's this holiday season you might want to double check it as some items are being recalled after testing positive for asbestos. "We have also confirmed that the talcum ingredient supply is from a certified asbestos-free European vendor". The woman works for a law firm that specializes in asbestos litigation.

"We have taken the precautionary measure of pulling the items in question from sale".

I got my mind on spending time with my family. "I feel like if anything, I need to deal with (that) in the offseason". If I can walk and I can move, I'm going to go out there and I'm going to try to play.

Researchers who conducted the tests told WJAR that he found tremolite asbestos in every product.

Claire's - which has over 3,000 stores in 36 countries - has released a list of nine products including eye shadows, blushes, and compact powders that have been pulled from its shelves as part of the asbestos case.

Warner and her boss chose to purchase 17 additional Claire's makeup products from different states and have them tested as well.

Asbestos is a known carcinogen and exposure to it has been linked to life-threatening diseases like asbestosis, lung cancer, and mesothelioma, according to the CDC.

Former mechanic shop employee kills two employees, himself, police say
Executive Assistant Police Chief Troy Finner confirmed officers received a call minutes later about "a shooting in progress". Multiple people, including customers and other employees, were at the shop when the shooting happened, Finner said.

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

Claire's is not the first store to pull children's makeup over asbestos concerns.

The Sun Online has asked the retailer to clarify if the sets have been on sale in the United Kingdom and if they have been tested for asbestos but so far it hasn't responded to our calls. "Once we have more information and have the results of the investigation we will take the necessary action", Claire's further stated.
