More Products Recalled Because of Lead
December 18, 2006

Since December 1, 2006, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced the voluntary recall of several products, including some children's jewelry, because these items contain lead. Lead poses a health hazard if it is eaten and it is toxic to many organs of the body. It is especially dangerous because it can damage the brain and peripheral nerves. Lead can affect anyone, but children are especially at risk because they are still growing rapidly.

The recalled products include:

The CPSC recommends that these products should not be handled or used. Adults should return the items to the retailer for a refund or replacement.
