The recall of the Siwa kit arrives just three months after several other Claire’s products were also yanked from shelves because they were found to contain asbestos, People reports. Asbestos refers to naturally occurring silicate minerals that, if inhaled, can lead to critical lung illnesses, including cancer.
Siwa, who licenses products in a wide variety of categories and vends them at myriad top-tier retailers — including Target, Walmart, and Kohl’s has yet to comment on the recall. In addition to makeup, Siwa currently sells a variety of other items at Claire’s, including hair accessories, planners, backpacks, sunglasses, and more.
