Product Recall: Children's Butterfly Necklaces

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Decor, Toys

U.S. Toy Co. Inc., of Grandview, Missouri, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling an additional 113,800 Butterfly Necklaces. Twenty-nine thousand necklaces were recalled previously in December, 2006. Once again, the pendants contain unacceptably high levels of lead.

These necklaces have pendants similar to the previous ones -- shaped as butterflies and painted in various colors. These, however, hang from a black cord. They were sold at U.S. Toy Company retail stores as well as children's discount stores nationwide from August through December 2006. They were also available online at the U.S. Toy Co. web site. They sold for about $5 per dozen. If your child has one of these necklaces, take it away immediately and return it to the store where it was purchased for a free replacement or contact the company directly if bought online. For more information, contact U.S. Toy Company at (800) 832-0224 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT, Monday through Friday or visit the firm's Web site.
