Good Housekeeping has an alarming article citing the discovery of asbestos in a makeup line found at Justice, a well known kids’ clothing store.
“Fibers like this get into your breathing zone, and when you inhale, these fibers can get into the lung and go to the very bottom of the lung, and that is exactly where you have the greatest likelihood of asbestos to cause disease,” Fitzgerald said. “Children should not be allowed to breathe it.
