Claire's was hit with a proposed class action on Wednesday in New York federal court, a day after the retail company recalled three of its makeup products, over asbestos presence concerns. The plaintiffs alleged that the recall would not fully compensate for their loss.
Plaintiffs Leslie Bowman and Angela Cosgrove told, the voluntary recall of the products was not fulfilling enough to repay the consumers for their damages and future diagnostic screening. A recent test conducted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and AMA Analytical Services Inc. indicated the retailer sold cosmetics contaminated with asbestos. The FDA recently found that three samples collected from Claire's and one from another retailer Justice tested positive for asbestos presence.
