Dance Moms breakout star JoJo Siwa’s new makeup kit for tweens has been recalled by popular accessory store Claire’s.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced last week (June 6) that the kit, which includes eyeshadows, lip and nail products, tested positive for asbestos, and the FDA issued a warning for consumers to stop using the product immediately.
“Claire’s stands behind the safety of this item and all other Claire’s cosmetic items, as such small trace amounts are considered acceptable under European and Canadian cosmetic safety regulations.” Claire’s said in a statement to USA Today. “In addition, last year Claire’s moved to talc-free cosmetic manufacturing to prevent any further concerns about talc contamination. Claire’s also supports increased FDA oversight of personal care products. We will provide a full refund to any customers who purchased the product.”
See the FDA’s tweet below. Siwa has yet to comment publicly on the incident.
