The scare over contaminated children’s makeup at Claire’s now has the attention of Congress

A new bill could make it harder for makeup companies to cover up contaminated children’s cosmetics.

Rep. Debbie Dingell (D-Mich.) on Tuesday introduced a bill that would require warning labels on makeup marketed to children that could contain asbestos. The proposed legislation comes after the Food and Drug Administration reported finding the carcinogen in makeup sold by national cosmetics and accessories retailers Claire’s APO, -1.30% and Justice earlier this month.

The FDA found asbestos in three types of cosmetic products sold at Claire’s and one product sold at Justice, which had already been recalled in 2017; other Justice products that were suspected of containing asbestos were also removed from shelves.
