Teens love to shop and spend time with their friends in malls across America. One of the most popular stores in a lot of those shopping centers is the cosmetic retailer Claire's. However, parents are now worried after their latest announcement.
According to Time, Claire’s, known for selling accessories and cosmetics targeted to young girls and teenagers, has recalled some of its makeup over asbestos concerns.
"The Claire’s makeup tested positive for tremolite asbestos, which has been associated with mesothelioma and other types of cancer, prompting a woman — who works at a law firm specializing in asbestos litigation — and her boss to purchase and test products from nine different states, NBC 10 reports. Each one tested positive for tremolite asbestos," reported Time.
The recall has been gaining more and more national attention since it was first announced before Christmas. Nearly everyone in America knows a young girl or mother who shops at Claire's. Due to the popularity of the store, the recall has been spreading quickly across the nation.
At this time, Claire's has announced they are investigating the report and are issuing full refunds for products that customers wish to return. The recall affects various glitter makeup sets, an eyeshadow and lip gloss palette and a glitter cell phone makeup compact.
