Necklaces, CD and MP3 Players - Product Recalls

Filed under: Alerts & Recalls

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has announced the recall of about 12,000 Children's Ball and Heart Necklaces and Portable CD and MP3 Players due to excessive levels of lead in the paint.

The recall involves three different items: a Ball and Heart necklace with pink beads of varying sizes and a pink heart in the center; a Portable CD Player with flowers and dots in blue and pink; and a pink MP3 player with purple, green, yellow and read hearts as well as a light blue one with a monkey's face on the front. Photos of all the recalled items can be found here.

These were made in China and imported by Tween Brands Inc., of New Albany, Ohio. They were sold exclusively at Limited Too and Justice retail stores nationwide, the Limited Too catazine (catalog), and on the Limited Too Website from May 2007 through August 2008. The Ball and Heart Necklace sold for about $8, the Portable CD Players sold for about $25, and the MP3 Players sold for about $55.

If you have one of the recalled items, you should immediately take it away from your child and return it to any Limited Too or Justice store for a full refund and a coupon for a 15% discount off a future purchase.
