Tinkerbell Bracelets Recalled for Lead
Tinkerbell's problems come less than a month after federal officials at the Consumer Product Safety Commission ordered the recall of pendants based on the Disney movie "The Princess and The Frog."
The pendants were found to have high levels of the toxic cadmium.
Meanwhile, according to Consumer Reports, executives at Schurman Fine Papers are voluntarily recalling their children's birthday cards that feature bracelets containing lead.
They are recalling 174,000 of the wood-bead bracelets because the paint contains excessive amounts of lead. The bracelets were sold between 2004 and 2009 and include a bead in the shape of a butterfly.
Again, Consumer Reports advises, take them away from children immediately. Call Schurman at 888-990-9095 for instructions.
