Product Recall: Children's Mood Necklaces

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Decor

Rhode Island Novelty, of Cumberland, R.I., in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling their Children's Mood Necklaces. Just like the necklaces I wrote about earlier, these too have been found to contain high levels of lead. See what I mean about dumping all kid's jewelry? Stick with the real thing, I say. Maybe, if a kid's not old enough to wear a real gold or silver necklace, they're not old enough to be wearing jewelry?

So these necklaces are "mood necklaces" -- multi-colored pendants on a black cord, in the shape of hearts, moons, dolphins, dragonflies, stars and butterflies. The packaging says "Mood Necklace." These were sold at carnivals, amusement parks, and so on, as well as small discount stores nationwide and Rhode Island Novelty's web site between August 2005 and December 2006. They cost about $1.

The recalled necklaces should be taken away from children and returned to the store where it was bought or to Rhode Island Novelty for a free replacement (which hopefully won't contain lead.) For more information, contact Rhode Island Novelty at (800) 528-5599 between 8:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's Web site.
