The FDA said Claire's may be selling makeup contaminated with asbestos

FDA: Asbestos found in some Claire's makeup

Claire's is a chain known for the glamorous accessories, trinkets and makeup popular among kids and teens.

However, this week the FDA said some of the makeup sold at Claire’s could be contaminated with asbestos fibers.

Asbestos is a known carcinogen and can be harmful for anyone who comes in contact with it.

Inside a Claire's store, the products on the shelves were pulled because of the recall.

The FDA advised people to stop using Claire’s eye shadow, compact powder and a contour palette.

Workers in the Orange Park Mall Claire’s store were told to pull the products Tuesday evening.

Customers like Agelina O’Connor were shocked to learn the products were even being sold in the stores.

“I think that’s insane and crazy that they would ever issue something with this asbestos in it, period,” O’Connor said.

Claire’s put out a statement on its Twitter page that read “... out of abundance of caution we have removed the three products identified by the FDA from the stores.”

The FDA said it is not aware of any adverse reactions associated with exposure to these Claire’s products.
