Asbestos recalls are somewhat common. If you closely follow product recalls or asbestos news, you may remember that in early 2018, the brand Justice recalled a number of products because of reports that laboratories found asbestos in some of them. There were similar claims made against the accessories chain store Claire's, although Claire's had less of an immediate reaction then Justice did.
Asbestos, a naturally-occurring mineral, has been used in hundreds of products, ranging from brake pads to building insulation in Navy ships. Asbestos has uses for both fireproofing items and insulating. However, medical professionals have suspected that asbestos caused disease and cancer since the beginning of the twentieth century.
