Claire’s Stores, Inc. announced a voluntary recall Tuesday for three cosmetic products.

The recall covers Claire’s Eye Shadows, Claire’s Compact Powder, and Claire’s Contour Palette.

The Food and Drug Administration conducted testing on the products and found there might be asbestos fibers in some of the products. Inhaling asbestos over time has been linked to serious health problems.

Last week, the FDA said Claire’s had refused its request for a recall and that the agency didn’t have the power to force one. However, federal regulators had warned people not to use the makeup products.

Now under the recall, the products are no longer available in stores, but customers may still have them at home.

They include:

  • Claire’s Eyeshadows, UPC #888711847165, SKU #84716, Lot No. 08/17
  • Claire’s Compact Powder, UPC #888711839153, SKU #83915, Lot No. 07/15
  • Claire’s Contour Palette, UPC #888711401947, SKU #40194, Lot No. 04/17

All three were on sale between October of 2016 and March of 2019. They were sold in Claire’s stores nationwide and online.

If you have one of the affected products, stop using it and return it to a Claire’s store for a full refund.

The company says it isn’t aware of any adverse reactions, injuries, or illness caused by the products.

Claire’s has four locations locally in Pismo Beach, Santa Maria, and Santa Barbara.
