“Out of an abundance of caution,” Claire’s Stores, Inc. today announced a voluntary recall of 3 of their cosmetic products: 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,” the company said in a press release. Inhalation of asbestos over time has been linked to serious adverse health consequences.
The products are no longer available in Claire’s Stores locations but may still be in the homes of consumers the company warned.
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
- Claire’s Contour Palette, UPC #888711401947, SKU #40194, Lot No. 04/17
All three products were offered for sale between October 2016 and March 2019 and have been removed from Claire’s Store shelves. They were sold in Claire’s Stores locations nationwide and online at www.claires.com.
The company says they are not aware of any adverse reactions, injuries or illness caused by the possible presence of asbestos in the recalled products.
Claire’s Store have a location in Bellis Fair Mall in Bellingham.
