Default important warning...please read

I know a lot of us have little girls and little grand daughters. Please check and see if they have this product in their rooms.

I found this article on the Portland, Oregon news site I read.

Made in CHINA. You know, the place that poisoned all the little dogs. I really think being around this makeup for a short time won't have too much effect. My parents built a new home in 1949, asbestos tile on the kitchen floor and asbestos shingles. We lived there 5 years. The first house my husband and I bought in 1964, had heat ducts wrapped in asbestos, house was built in 1907. It's all around us in life. He grew up in a house built in 1900, pipes were wrapped. It was what was done back in the day. Cancer causing things are all around us, we can't shield our offspring from everything, would have to make them live in a bubble for that.

I just question anything 'made in China' anymore. We had two friends who lost dogs to bad food. I think it contained some kind of plastic, anyone remember. Was it melmine? I will pass this info on to friends with granddaughters. Thank you for sharing, I had not seen it on the news.

And as an added note, my mother's birthday is New Years Eve, she turns 95. And she did a lot of cooking in that kitchen!

you'd be surprised at how many people don't know about China and cancer causing chemicals they have in their products. I just sigh.
my son went to a high school that had asbestos in the ceiling tiles. kids just jumped up and hit them and the stuff came raining down. Sigh again!! I didn't know that at the time.
