Prominent retailer pulls makeup contaminated with asbestos

The prominent mall jewelry and makeup store Claire’s is pulling a number of products from stores after independent testing found that several of their products contained tremolite asbestos.

The retailer, which operates in 47 countries and has 3,400 worldwide stores, issued a statement on Twitter on December 23, saying it would pull all of the cosmetics in question off the shelves and conduct an investigation. Anyone with these products in their home can return it to Claire’s for a full refund.

The story was first reported by WPRI Rhode Island, which received the information from a local mother who had her 6 year-old daughter’s makeup tested. She sent a glitter recently purchased at a Claire’s to an independent lab. After it tested positive, further tests revealed 17 products from Claire’s were contaminated with the toxic mineral. The products were gathered from 9 different states.

Asbestos causes mesothelioma, asbestosis, lung cancer and other serious diseases. Because of the number of products found to contain asbestos, it is likely a number of consumers were exposed. Consumers of the retailer are often young women and girls.

A number of consumer products still contain asbestos

Asbestos remains a danger for countless Americans. In addition to being a danger on construction and demolition worksites, products continue to be found with asbestos – from talcum powder in personal hygiene products to cosmetic products.

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral found throughout the U.S. Although mining the dangerous carcinogen is prohibited by law, it can be disturbed in talcum mining. The U.S. also continues to use asbestos in several products and manufacturing processes.

We will be monitoring the situation and share it on our blog as more information becomes available.
