There has been some controversy in the last month as Dance Moms star JoJo Siwa has seen make-up kits removed from the shelves of Claire’s Accessories due to an investigation by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for fears over the beauty products containing traces of asbestos.
The cosmetic kits, which are branded by JoJo, contain lip gloss, nail polish, and eyeshadow and were found to contain traces of asbestos after undergoing testing. The products were recalled immediately.
Representatives for Nickelodeon (who licensed the beauty product) stated that they take health and safety extremely seriously and would take up a process of thorough review with Claire’s after taking advice from the FDA on this specific product line and the worries over asbestos.
Claire’s meanwhile has voluntarily recalled the Cosmetic Kit in order to adhere to the extreme caution being recommended by the FDA. It is the fourth product recall in three months, under similar circumstances, and will issue a full refund to any customers who have purchased the beauty product.
Asbestos is a dangerous substance and it only takes one breath of asbestos dust or materials containing asbestos to cause long-term illness and fatalities (with many symptoms not presenting for many decades after inhalation). At Artisan Surveyors we take the presence of asbestos very seriously, offering our clients a full and extensive asbestos survey service, as well as a fully licensed and safe asbestos removal service.
