Siwa continued that,
"We are working really, really hard to make sure that this product is recalled and off all shelves,” she said. “And also that anyone who has this product, you can get a refund … If it’s used or it’s unused, you can get a full refund.”
Your the same company that passed it through the regulatory system ? Until there is a public outcry you recall it ?— It's me :) (@SkyChewz) June 8, 2019
The YouTube star explained to her fans that she is taking the scandal seriously.
"I put too much trust in other people, I thank you for understanding, because it is serious to me, and it means a lot to me,” Siwa said. “Cause it is my name, and it is my brand, and it is my face — quite literally.”
She went on to appreciate her fans and followers for their understanding.
