A popular tween clothing store here in Rockford has pulled a make up product for containing a deadly material.

WGN reports that the tween clothing store for girls, Justice, has pulled the make up product "Just Shine Shimmer Powder" due to having traces of asbestos in it.

A Durham, North Carolina TV station, WBTV, did a report on the stores make up for tween girls and found that when they sent samples to a lab to test it for unlisted materials that the face powder had high traces of asbestos along with "heavy metals like barium, chromium, lead, and selenium."

Yikes! The biggest threat being asbestos. According to WBTV's report, if a child is exposed to this make up now they "could die an untimely death in their thirties or forties."  

Wow! That is really, really bad and not to mention scary for all parents.

So what does Justice have to say about this? Here's their facebook post.


This item is being pulled from all Justice stores, including Rockford's in CherryVale Mall.

Parents check your children's purses, backpacks, room or bathroom drawers and for Just Shine Shimmer face powder and take it back to Justice immediately.
