Claire’s have issued a warning about make-up products they fear pose as asbestos risk.
Britons have been warned about the JoJo Cosmetic Kit, created by singer JoJo Siwa.
The products, aimed at children, have tested positive for asbestos after an FDA investigation.
The 16-year-old singer is known for her Youtube channel and appearance on programme Dance Moms.
The make-up products come in a small heart shaped bag and contain eye-shadow, nail polish and lipgloss.
It is the eye-shadow element of the kit that has tested positive for the dangerous asbestos, but customers can get a refund for the whole product.
Claire’s told Heart.co.uk: “Claire’s Stores, Inc. has voluntarily recalled the JoJo Cosmetic Kit out of an abunDance of caution after testing by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration indicated the possible presence of trace amounts of asbestos fibres in the powder eyeshadow element of the kit.”
“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. 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.”
Breathing in asbestos fibres from the disturbed material can damage the lungs over time.

A Tesco recall has seen the supermarket removed flavourings from shelves that pose a risk to those with milk allergies.
The supermarket has warned customers not to eat the Tesco Turkish Inspired Tomato Seasoning if they have a milk allergy.
The FSA said on its website: “Tesco is recalling Tesco Turkish Inspired Tomato Seasoning because milk is not declared on the label.
“The product has been incorrectly packed with Tesco Thai Inspired Chilli and Coconut Seasoning which contains milk.
“This means the product is a possible health risk for anyone with an allergy or intolerance to milk or milk constituents.”
