Citing Fear Of Asbestos, Claire’s Pulls Its Makeup Sets From Shelves

The children's makeup has been pulled from all Claire's stores until its investigation into the allegations is complete.

A popular children's accessories chain is pulling at least a dozen makeup products from its shelves after a Rhode Island mother discovered asbestos in her daughter's makeup kit.

Claire's Stores Inc. said the makeup in question was also sold in stores in Canada.

Kristi Warner, who works for Deaton Law Firm in Rhode Island, sent the makeup her six-year-old daughter used to an independent lab for testing. The lab said the products tested positive for tremolite asbestos.

Warner then purchased other makeup products from nine different states and sent those for testing as well. She said all of them contained tremolite asbestos.

Claire's is investigating the claims and has pulled the products in question from store shelves. In the meantime, the company's website offers a list of affected products with more information:
