Posted at 4:48 PM, Mar 12, 2019

Claire's Stores Inc. has stopped selling three cosmetic products due to the possibility of the presence of asbestos fibers.

The company says out of caution it is also recalling these products as they may be in the homes of customers. This includes Claire’s Eye Shadows, Claire’s Compact Powder and Claire’s Contour Palette.

"We initiated this voluntary recall after testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration indicated the possible presence of asbestos fibers in product samples from one lot of each product," says the recall from Claire's Stores. "Inhalation of asbestos over time has been linked to serious adverse health consequences. The products are no longer available in our stores, but may still be in the homes of consumers."

According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the SKUs/lots being recalled are:

  • Claire's Eyeshadows, UPC #888711847165, SKU #84716, Lot No. 08/17
  • Claire's Compact Powder, UPC #888711839153, SKU #83915, Lot No. 07/15
