Product Recall: Children's Necklaces, Bracelets and Rings

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Toys

Spandrel Sales and Marketing Inc., of Tempe, Arizona, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling their Children's Necklaces, Bracelets and Rings. The jewelry in question is actually part of the Crown Jewels of England, stolen from the Tower of London in the late 17th century. Okay, no, not really. They contain high levels of lead, which is toxic. If you and I know about how bad lead is for kids, why don't the manufacturers and importers of children's toys and jewelry?

The recalled jewelry includes pendants that hang from silver-colored bracelet and necklace chains, and silver-colored rings with a charm on top. Charm shapes include silver-colored crosses, suns, moons, stars, butterflies, cupids, angels, keys, elephants, hands, cell phones, fish, and shoes. These were sold for a quarter in vending machines across the country during February and March of this year. Parents should immediately take these items away from children and throw them out. For more information, contact Spandrel Sales and Marketing toll-free at (877) 213-0500 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's Web site.
