Product Recall: Children's Charm Bracelets and "Sportswear" Necklaces

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

Cardinal Distributing Co., of Baltimore, Maryland, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling their Children's Charm Bracelets and "Sportswear" Necklaces. The paint on this jewelry contains high levels of lead. Nearly a million of these have been sold and are, presumably, in the hands of children. Hey, at least someone made some money on them, right?

The recalled necklaces have sports-themed pendants including blue or green basketballs, yellow stars, "01," and "Perfect 10" hanging from a black cord. The bracelets have green or pink painted heart-shaped charms with various words, symbols, and foreign characters on them, as well as silver-colored charms in various shapes. These were sold in vending machines located in malls and in discount, department, and grocery stores nationwide beginning in January of 2006.

If your kid has one of these, take them away immediately and throw them out. For more information, contact Cardinal Distributing Co. Inc. at (800) 368-2062 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's Web site.
