Makeup products recalled for containing asbestos


The United States Food and Drug Administration has issued a recall of a makeup line promoted by Nickelodeon star, JoJo Siwa, over claim that it contains asbestos.

Asbestos is an effective insulator, used in cloth, paper, cement, plastic and other materials to make them stronger. But it can cause cancer when someone inhales or ingests its dust, which mineral fibers can become forever trapped in the body.

However, Jojo, has taken to her popular YouTube channel to pledge that she was getting the problematic product taken off the shelves at accessories chain Claire’s along with ensuring that future products will be completely safe.

‘Recently it’s been brought up to my attention that there has been a problem with one of my products in Claire’s stores, with one of the JoJo makeup products,’ the Nickelodeon performer said.

The 16-year-old added: ‘I just want to let everyone know that, no matter what, safety is myself and Nickelodeon’s number one priority in everything – in every JoJo product and in everything out there.’
