    Hate To Be The Bearer Of Bad News, But There's Asbestos In JoJo Siwa's Makeup Kit

    Don't worry, there are plenty of other YouTuber makeup kits in the sea.

    I am here to deliver some unfortunate news that probably has JoJo Siwa looking like this:

    If you're asking yourself who JoJo Siwa is, the short answer is that she's a 16-year-old YouTuber with nearly 10 million followers who sells A TON of merchandise (bows, clothes, dolls, lunch kits, you name it).

    She recently released a makeup kit for teens that was sold at Claire's accessory and cosmetic stores. But last week the FDA announced that it found asbestos in the product.

    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 https://t.co/p4AACHd9y8

    Asbestos is a toxic mineral that can cause cancer and other diseases.

    It might look fluffy in its natural form...BUT DON'T BE FOOLED.

    Claire's said in a statement that it has "voluntarily recalled the JoJo Cosmetic Kit out of an abundance of caution," but it stands behind the safety of the product, "as such small trace amounts are considered acceptable under European and Canadian cosmetic safety regulations."

    To that I say...I'd prefer zero trace amounts of asbestos if possible, please and thank you.

    In March, Claire's recalled three other products from its stores after the FDA found they contained asbestos.

    Siwa still hasn't released any kind of statement on the matter.
