Last week, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration revealed that certain products at a popular retailer contained a dangerous carcinogen. Now, Claire's has revealed that they are recalling at least three of their products.

According to ABC News, the company recalled eye shadow, compact powder, and a contour palette batch. All three products tested positive for asbestos which ABC News reported is "a naturally occurring mineral often found in the earth near talc, an ingredient in many makeup products."

The FDA wrote, "Consumers who have these batches/lots of Claire's Eye Shadow, Compact Powder, and Contour in their home should stop using them. Claire's has informed us that it does not believe that affected products are still available for sale."

Claire's released a statement as well. They issued a voluntary recall but said that they are "not aware of any adverse reactions, injuries or illness caused by the possible presence of asbestos in the recalled products."

The statement added, "We are working with FDA to ensure the agency and our customers share that confidence."

The recall was made almost a week after the products in question were discovered to contain asbestos fibers. The products were sold between October 2016 and March 2019, in stores and online. 

Now, all of the recalled products have been removed from the stores and online. However, the company is still warning consumers to get rid of the products if they had previously purchased them. 

If you or anyone you know has purchased these products, please use caution and return them to your local store! Share this information with family and friends. In other recent news, a major update was just given on Lori Loughlin after she was accused of a federal crime.
