Claire’s Makeup Testing Positive for Asbestos

A mother in Rhode Island recently submitted makeup she bought for her 6-year-old daughter to an independent lab for testing. The lab, Scientific Analytical Institute, is the same lab that found asbestos in the makeup sold at the retail store Justice.

Claire’s has pulled at least 17 products off of their shelves while they investigate the alleged issues this past week.

They issued the following statement:

“At Claire’s the safety of our customers is of paramount importance, and we are passionate about the safety and integrity of our products. We work closely with our vendors to ensure our products are tested and assessed in line with the relevant country regulations and guidelines. As a result of today’s 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 the alleged issues. Once we have more information and have the results of the investigation we will take the necessary action.”

There is not currently a list available of the contaminated products and have not yet issued an “official” recall.

Our attorneys are currently investigating the claim that there is asbestos in the makeup sold at Claire’s stores. We will be willing to speak to individuals regarding these potential cases. Call our office at (303) 327-9988 and ask to speak with Jon Boesen about these claims.
