Found 29th Dec 2017
It's been all over the news in the US & is just starting to filter through over here. Claires have recalled approx 10 Make Up sets in the US as they have been found to contain traces of tremolite asbestos, which has been linked to cancer.

So far in the UK, they haven't recalled any items however they have pulled them from stores whilst they carry out tests & you can return them for a full refund if worried.

More info can be found HERE & the link to Claire's Statement & Products is HERE (scroll down to Cosmetics).

The items that can be returned for a refund include some very popular sets eg

Ultimate Mega Make Up Set - code 71844

Probably but we have the joy in knowing that when the offending company director/s are traced in China then they face the death penalty. Unlike the UK, China doesnt do leniency when it comes to exporting products that can kill containing carcinogenics..

You are confusing this with the Chinese FDA leader execution for allowing tainted drugs for sale in China and corruption.
There is a fuller version of the story here

The guy tested multiple sets of each product and found the same levels in all of them; he also found them still on sale in several places AFTER they had supposedly been withdrawn.

Quite scary, but if you used talc in the 80s or 90s you can pretty much guarantee tremolite in them. Loads of huge companies were taken to court over it.
