If your princess likes to get decked out in baubles, take note. The Consumer Product Safety Commission and F.A.F. Inc. have announced a voluntary recall of certain children's metal necklaces.

The pieces, shaped like a metal crown or frog pendant on a metal link chain necklace, contain high levels of cadmium. Cadmium is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects. No injuries have been reported, but consumers should stop using the necklaces immediately.

Sold exclusively at Walmart, the packaging includes the words "The Princess and the Frog" and includes the following model numbers and UPC codes:

  • Crown Model # 4616-4187 UPC # 72783367144
  • Frog Model # 4616-4190 UPC # 72783367147
You should return the recalled jewelry to any Walmart store for a full refund or a free replacement product. For more information, contact F.A.F. Inc. at 800-949-3311 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on weekdays or visit the company's Web site at
