Claire's maintains that its "products are safe" and disputes the test results, saying they "show signficant errors." The retailer insists the tests "have mischaracterized fibers in the products as asbestos." Claire's, a jewelry and accessory retailer, has more than 2,400 locations in North America and Europe.The FDA said the Justice product, a shimmer powder, had already been recalled from the market in 2017.
Other independent testers dispute Claire's claim that these products are safe. The US PIRG Education Fund, a consumer advocacy group, released results last March that said its testing showed that the same three Claire's products contained asbestos.
