Kristiana Warner told WPRI-TV that she was already working with a lab on another case and chose to have her six-year-old daughter's makeup tested - leading to the discovery of asbestos in one product, and later in 17 samples.

"Out of an abundance of caution, additional testing is underway", the company said in its Friday statement.

On Friday, Claire's said the initial results of testing by an "independent certified laboratory show that the cosmetics tested to date are asbestos free".

The retailer said it also confirmed that a talcum ingredient in the products came "from a certified asbestos-free European vendor". "If you have items you wish to return in the interim period we will issue a refund", the company said in the statement. The woman works for a law firm that specializes in asbestos litigation.

A Providence, R.I., TV station had aired a story about a local law firm's test of a Claire's product, saying it contained asbestos, In response, Claire's recalled the product and ordered its own tests.

She tested 17 other makeup products purchased from Claire's stores across nine states to determine if it was a widespread problem.

Exposure to asbestos, once commonly used for building insulation, has been found to lead to certain types of cancers and tumors on internal organs.

Health Canada says it has requested to see testing data from Claire's Stores Inc. following reports that asbestos has been found in certain cosmetic products sold by the global retailer of youth-oriented jewelry and accessories.

The Sun Online has asked the retailer to clarify if the sets have been on sale in the United Kingdom and if they have been tested for asbestos but so far it hasn't responded to our calls.

"Once we have information and have the results of the investigation we will take the necessary action".
