Claire's recalls YouTube star JoJo Siwa's cosmetics over asbestos concerns
From glitter hair spray to patterned hairbands and colourful scrunchies, Claire's is hugely popular among older children and young teenagers.
Unfortunately, the high street brand are in now hot water over asbestos concerns in some of its products, specifically the JoJo Cosmetic Kit.
There were highly concerning rumours about their products containing traces of asbestos in 2017, and the fears have now been confirmed by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA).
Today, the FDA is releasing new results from its continued testing of cosmetic products for asbestos & is warning consumers to not use 2 additional products that have tested positive for asbestos & have been recalled https://t.co/p4AACHd9y8pic.twitter.com/DYtSelENEj
Claire’s told Today Style that the palette has been recalled “out of an abundance of caution after testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration indicated the possible presence of trace amount of asbestos fibres in the powder eyeshadow element of the kit.”
A Claire's spokesperson maintained that the company “stands behind the safety of this product and all other Claire’s cosmetic items as such small trace amounts are considered acceptable under European and Canadian cosmetic safety regulations.”
