More cosmetics have been recalled after testing positive for asbestos

Claire’s, which recalled three makeup products in March after FDA testing found asbestos, has yanked another lot of a makeup set for the same reason. Beauty Plus Global has done the same with a batch of a makeup palette for the same reason.

Both recalls were made by the companies before they were announced by the FDA Thursday as an update to addressing asbestos in cosmetics. Claire’s long denied that its makeup had asbestos, casting doubt in 2018 on the credibility of Rhode Island mother Kristi Warner and the law firm for which she works after she said her firm’s testing found asbestos.

Claire’s recall, announced on its website March 30, covers JoJo Siwa Makeup Set, lot No. S180109. the set can be returned for refund to any Claire’s store. Consumers with questions may contact Claire’s at 800-252-4737, option 2, from 9:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. EDT.

Beauty Plus Global pulled Counter Effects Palette 2, batch No. S1603002/PD-C1179. Those with questions about the Beauty Plus recall can call 877-390-8882, 11:30 a.m. to 8 p.m., Eastern time or email
