It’s a parent’s job to worry about everything when it comes to their child’s safety. Sometimes, those worries turn out to be unfounded. Others, like in this mom’s case, prove a parent’s intuition right.
Last month, WJAR-TV reported on a mom from Barrington, Rhode Island, who was concerned about the ingredients in her six-year-old daughter’s makeup kit from Claire’s. After sending it to an independent testing lab in North Carolina, Kristi Warner received horrifying information. The results showed that the kit contained tremolite asbestos, a toxic material which if swallowed or inhaled can lead to lung cancer and mesothelioma. What’s worse is that when Warner bought 17 other Claire’s makeup products from different states and had them tested, tremolite asbestos was found in all of them.
