Claire’s, a fashion accessory retail chain marketed to young girls and preteens, is reportedly filing for bankruptcy as a second round of lab tests found deadly asbestos fibers in the store’s cosmetics products. According to Bloomberg News in America.
A consumer and public interest research group, released a report revealing three Claire’s makeup products tested positive for asbestos — the naturally occurring mineral linked to asbestos disease mesothelioma.
The report comes less than three months after lab tests conducted by Scientific Analytical Institute (SAI) found asbestos-contaminated talc in 17 cosmetic products acquired from Claire’s stores across the country. Read link below for more details.
