If you have a young child in your house chances are you have a lot of JoJo Siwa merchandise. The former Dance Moms cast member is now a star in her own right, an icon for the tween and under set and the main reason why hair bows are so popular yet again! JoJo's popularity knows no bounds and she seems to have branded merchandise featuring everything from clothing to bedding, her own Lunchable kit and every accessory you could imagine.
The teen star, known for wearing glitter and rainbows, recently expanded her partnership with accessories giant Claire's and introduced a makeup kit containing eyeshadow, two lip glosses, and nail polish. If you purchased this for the JoJo fan in your life you will want to throw it out immediately as it's been recalled by the Food and Drug Administration.
Last week the FDA announced the recall on Claire’s JoJo Siwa Makeup Set, stating it tested positive for asbestos, writing about the recall on Twitter. "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," the FDA wrote alongside two images of the product.

In a statement to USA Today, Claire's confirmed that "trace amounts of asbestos fibers" were found in the powdered eyeshadow contained in the kit. The company also stated that due to the FDA report they have "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."
The FDA suggests that anyone who has the JoJo Siwa cosmetics kit immediately stop using it. The affected product has an SKU of #888711136337 and features a batch/Lot No. of S180109.
Siwa has yet to comment on the recall.
