Siwa, who has 9.8 million subscribers on YouTube and over 8 million on Instagram, has yet to make a statement about the recall.
YouTube star JoJo Siwa's makeup kit has been recalled after trace amounts of a highly toxic substance was found.
The "Dance Moms" alum's kit was recalled by Claire's after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration found the products to be dangerous as they tested positive for asbestos, the store confirmed TooFab in a statement.
Last week, the FDA issued a warning to stop using Siwa's product, called the JoJo Siwa Makeup Set (Batch/Lot No. S180109), which contains eyeshadow, two lip glosses and nail polish.
According to Claire's, "trace amounts of asbestos fibers" were found in the powder eye shadow and they "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."
Today, the FDA is releasing new results from its continued testing of cosmetic products for asbestos & is warning consumers to not use 2 additional products that have tested positive for asbestos & have been recalled https://t.co/p4AACHd9y8 pic.twitter.com/DYtSelENEj— U.S. FDA (@US_FDA) June 6, 2019
Siwa has a huge following among young girls and tweens -- even Kim Kardashian's daughter North West is a fan -- so having her products be sold at Claire's definitely fits her demographic. However, Siwa's products aren't the only makeup items the fashion and accessories store has had to recall.
Back in March, the FDA announced that three products sold at Claire's also contained asbestos and advised customers not to use them.
- Claire's Eye Shadows -- Batch No/Lot No: 08/17
- Claire's Compact Powder -- Batch No/Lot No: 07/15
- Claire's Contour Palette -- Batch No/Lot No: 04/17
According to USA Today, Claire's initially refused the FDA's request to recall the products, however, they eventually relented "out of an abundance of caution."
TooFab has reached out to Claire's and Siwa for comment.
