Product Recall: Children's Butterfly Necklaces

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Toys

U.S. Toy Co. Inc., of Grandview, Missouri, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling about 29,000 Children's Butterfly Necklaces. The clasps on the necklaces contain high levels of lead which is pretty toxic stuff.

The necklaces being recalled are silver with butterfly-shaped pendants in different colors. The necklaces were packaged on pink and purple cardboard with "Butterfly Necklace" printed on the front and "Item #JA442" on the back. They were sold at U.S. Toy Co retail stores, at the U.S. Toy website, and at discount stores nationwide from October 2005 through November of this year. They cost about $4 per dozen. Take the necklaces away from children immediately and return them to the store where they were bought for a free replacement. For more information, contact U.S. Toy Co. Inc. at (800) 832-0224 between 8:30am and 5 p.m. CT, Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's Web site.
