The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning consumers to avoid using cosmetics sold by Claire’s Stores and Beauty Plus Global after the agency found makeup products containing asbestos, a cancer-causing material for which there is no safe level of exposure.
Products that tested positive for asbestos have been pulled voluntarily by both companies. The recalled products include:
- Beauty Plus Global Contour Effects Palette 2, Batch No. S1603002/PD-C1179
- Claire's JoJo Siwa Makeup Set, SKU #888711136337, Batch/Lot No. S180109
Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral used as a fire-retardant and water-resistant material in construction and other industries for decades. Inhaling or consuming asbestos can lead to serious respiratory diseases including lung cancer and mesothelioma.
