The United States Consumer Product Safety commission, in cooperation with Bead Bazaar USA, Inc. of Rockville, Maryland, has announced a recall of approximately 13,000 “It’s a Girl Thing” Bracelets and Phone Charms due to the jewelry containing high levels of lead.
Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects such as headaches, irritability, abdominal pain, vomiting, anemia, weight loss, poor attention span, slowed speech development, and hyperactivity. At the time of the writing of this blog, no injuries had been reported so far. The jewelry was sold nationwide from February 2006 through June 2008 for about $6.00. Consumers should take the recalled jewelry away from children as soon as possible and return it for a full refund.
