Claire's Pulls Makeup Kits from Shelves Due to Asbestos Concerns

(NBC) - Claire's, the popular kids accessories chain, is pulling more than a dozen items from its store shelves after a Rhode Island family discovered asbestos in their 6-year-old daughter's makeup.

The following is a statement from the company's website: 

"At Claire’s the safety of our customers is of paramount importance, and we are passionate about the safety and integrity of our products. We work closely with our vendors to ensure our products are tested and assessed in line with the relevant country regulations and guidelines. As a result of today’s inquiry from WJAR-TV, we have taken the precautionary measure of pulling the items in question from sale, and will be conducting an immediate investigation into the alleged issues. Once we have more information and have the results of the investigation we will take the necessary action. If you have items you wish to return in the interim period we will issue a refund."

The NBC News 10 report that prompted that statement from Claire's can be seen here.
