Claire's Recalls Makeup A Week After FDA's Asbestos Warning

The retailer Claire's is recalling three makeup products after U.S. regulators warned they might contain asbestos.

Last week, the Food and Drug Administration said product samples tested positive for asbestos but that Claire's refused to recall any products that might still be in homes. The retailer at the time disputed the test results but said it removed the products — Claire’s Contour Palette, Claire’s Eyeshadows and Claire’s Compact Powder — from stores.

Now, the Hoffman Estates-based company is also recalling the products, which were sold between 2016 and this month. A Claire's representative wasn't immediately available for comment.

Asbestos can get in the lungs and cause cancer, but the greatest risk is to people with frequent, long-term exposure. The FDA said it's not aware of anyone being sickened by the makeup.
