The YouTuber and 'Dance Moms' star hasn't yet released a statement on her makeup kit's asbestos contamination.

A JoJo Siwa makeup set has been recalled from Claire's after testing positive for asbestos. Inhalation of asbestos fibres can lead to fatal lung conditions, including cancer. Yeah… big yikes.

JoJo Siwa just dragged Justin Bieber for his "burn it" diss in the most savage way

According to reports from People, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a warning for people to stop using JoJo's makeup kit immediately, after the product tested positive for asbestos. It was also recalled from Claire's.

An FDA statement read: "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."

The contaminated JoJo makeup kit is Batch/Lot No. S180109, which contains eyeshadow, two lip glosses and nail polish. JoJo's fans are mainly all young girls and teens, with Kim Kardashian's daughter North West, five, being a huge fan of JoJo and her distinctive makeup.


What is asbestos?

In case you didn't know, asbestos is natural fibrous mineral – and a well known dangerous health hazard – that can be used to make building materials and plastic stronger. Asbestos is banned in many countries, but the US remains one of the last "developed" countries to not ban it.

In the US, many consumer products legally contain traces of the substance and it's still widely used in clothing, millboards, gaskets, cement pipes, pipeline wraps, vinyl floor tiles, disk brake pads and roof coatings.


Yeah, it's probably best stick to rocking our natural beauty for a while…
