Claire's says its makeup has no asbestos. Law firm still disagrees

Two weeks after a law firm said lab tests found cancer-causing asbestos in makeup from Claire's, the girls cosmetics and accessories retailer said lab tests it funded proves that the makeup is asbestos-free.

Claire's said it will still honor returns from customers feeling uneasy about any of the nine products it took off shelves in reaction to a Dec. 22 news report by WJAR-TV in Providence, R.I. The report said a Rhode Island law firm's operations director, Kristi Warner, sent some of her daughter's makeup for testing and that it tested positive for tremolite asbestos, which is linked to mesothelioma, a type of cancer.
