YouTube star JoJo Siwa’s makeup recalled from Claire’s for asbestos

JoJo Siwa‘s makeup could harm your health.

On June 6, the FDA announced that it is recalling a cosmetics set the 16-year-old YouTube star was selling exclusively at Claire’s after the eyeshadow tested positive for asbestos.

Claire’s recalled the product the week prior to the statement’s release. But this isn’t the company’s first brush with the government agency: The FDA also released a safety alert in early March warning consumers not to use other Claire’s cosmetics, also because of asbestos.

Siwa, who has 9.8 million YouTube subscribers and legions of young fans including Kim Kardashian‘s daughter North West, has a collaboration line with Claire’s. Her products include various sequin-covered bows and the recalled makeup set, which contained a nail polish, two lip glosses, a compact mirror and an eyeshadow palette.

In a statement to USA Today, the jewelry and accessories retailer clarified that the company “voluntarily recalled the JoJo Cosmetic Kit out of an abundance of caution.”

“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,” the company added. “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.”
