FDA Advises Consumers on Claire’s Cosmetic Products

en Español

Product samples test positive for asbestos.

The FDA is advising consumers not to use certain Claire’s cosmetic products because they may be contaminated with asbestos fibers.

Samples of the following products tested positive for tremolite asbestos during FDA testing:

  • Claire’s Eye Shadows – Batch No/Lot No: 08/17
  • Claire’s Compact Powder – Batch No/Lot No: 07/15
  • Claire’s Contour Palette – Batch No/Lot No: 04/17

The FDA sampled and had tested targeted cosmetic products following reports of contaminated cosmetics marketed by Claire’s. Testing was conducted on behalf of FDA by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and AMA Analytical Services, Inc.

Asbestos is a naturally occurring mineral that is often found near talc, an ingredient in many cosmetic products. Asbestos however, is a known carcinogen and its health risks are well-documented. During talc mining, if talc mining sites are not selected carefully and steps are taken to purify the talc ore sufficiently, the talc may be contaminated with asbestos.

Consumers who have these batches/lots of Claire’s Eye Shadow, Compact Powder, and Contour in their home should stop using them. Claire’s has informed us that it does not believe that affected products are still available for sale.

The FDA is not aware of any adverse reactions associated with exposure to these Claire’s products. Health care professionals and consumers are encouraged to report any adverse events potentially related to Claire’s Eye Shadow, Compact Powder, and Contour Palette to FDA’s MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting program by:

The FDA is advising consumers not to use any of the following products.

"Korshak" Retiree Healthcare Litigation:

Retiree Healthcare (the Korshak/Underwood litigation for all City of Chicago annuitants):  In litigation dating back to 1987 the City, on May 15, 2013, declared its intention to phase out and end retiree healthcare entirely by the end of 2016.

We launched the current challenge to that in late 2013.  The case was removed to federal court, dismissed, but reversed and remanded to the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois.

Currently pending in the Illinois Appellate Court is our Petition for Rehearing on the Court's June 29, 2017 Opinion, which expands the covered class to everyone whose first hire date was before June 16, 2003.

On January 31, 2019, we filed the Sixth Amended Class Action Complaint, asserting claims for lifetime protection under the Constitution's Art. XIII, Section 5 Pension Protection Clause, as well as Breach of Contract and Estoppel. 

The case is being actively pursued to fight for your promised lifetime retiree healthcare benefits.
