    The discovery of asbestos in nearly twenty products intended for use by children has forced the retail chain Claire’s to remove them on the eve of Christmas.

    This is the mother of a family of Rhode Island which has forced the american company specialized in the sale of fashion accessories to act, CNN reported Saturday.

    Kristi Warner is worried after having purchased the necessary make-up for his six year old daughter, Mackenzie.

    The one who works for a law firm has, therefore, decided to send the box in a laboratory independent of the State of North Carolina.

    It is here that the carcinogenic substance has been detected, according to CNN.

    “I was sick when they called me. I wondered how something so toxic could be in my house,” she told the television channel in the United States.

    “In the field in which I work, we often see cases of cosmetic products that would pose a problem. But I thought that the makeup for the children could not be safe…”

    Shocked by this result, it was decided, with the help of his boss, to submit other products for children from Claire’s at different laboratories across the United States.

    Asbestos has been found in all the goods sent.

    A manager of one of the laboratories consulted, told CNN that the results were very accurate and he was impressed to have discovered asbestos in such products.

    The retail chain Claire’s has responded Saturday on his Twitter account, stating that the products complained of were to be removed.

    “We will now conduct our own investigation into this matter,” said the company.

    Asbestos is a highly carcinogenic that causes including mesothelioma, a rare form of lung cancer.
