Claire's Accessories has just recalled 9 of its kids make-up kits

Claire's Accessories has just recalled 9 of its kids make-up kits

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. Out of an abundance of caution, additional testing is underway.

Claire's has pulled multiple products after a Rhode Island woman found asbestos in her 6-year-old daughter's makeup.

The retailer's first comments through social media, issued last week, followed a local television news report in Providence, R.I., which featured a woman who works at a Rhode Island law firm that specializes in asbestos litigation.

After a detailed investigation by Warner's firm and the Scientific Analytical Institute, 17 more samples from Claire's stores in nine states "all tested positive at alarming rates". Asbestos was once commonly used for building insulation, and has been found to cause certain types of cancers and tumors on internal organs.

According to WJAR, they all tested positive for asbestos.

Claire's has not placed an official "recall" on the impacted products but has pulled all remaining product from their store shelves at this time.

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.

The full list of potentially affected products can be found here, all of which can be returned for a full refund.

A popular store has pulled makeup kits off of the shelves after a report that the makeup contained asbestos. Justice later denied the claims, saying all of their tests came back safe.

"As a result of the inquiry from WJAR-TV, we have taken the precautionary measure of pulling the items in question from sale and will be conducting an immediate investigation into alleged issues". "We work closely with our vendors to ensure our products are tested and assessed in line with relevant country regulations and guidelines. Once we have more information and have the results of the investigation we will take the necessary action".
