Claire’s Stores announced it is voluntarily recalling three cosmetic products over possible asbestos contamination.

The products are no longer available in our stores, but may still be in the homes of consumers. 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
  • Claire’s Contour Palette, UPC #888711401947, SKU #40194, Lot No. 04/17

The company says it is doing the recall following testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that found the possible presence of asbestos fibers in product samples from one lot of each of the affected products.

All three products were offered for sale between October 2016 and March 2019.

To date, Claire’s says it is not aware of any adverse reactions, injuries or illness caused by the possible presence of asbestos in the recalled products.

The affected products were sold in Claire’s stores nationwide and on www.claires.com. Any consumers who have purchased these products should discontinue use and return them to a Claire’s store for a full refund.

Consumers with questions may contact Claire’s at 800-252-4737, option 2, from 9:30 a.m.-7 p.m. EDT.
