In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Tween Brands Inc., of New Albany, Ohio, is voluntarily recalling about 103,000 pieces of Children’s Metal Jewelry.
The jewelry contains high levels of lead which can cause adverse health effects and is toxic if ingested by young children.
Some of the recalled necklaces, bracelets, earrings, and charms are metallic, multi-colored, and have “High School Musical” or pictures of “High School Musical” actors printed on them. Others have frogs, hearts, stars, dogs with dog bones, flowers, and monkeys that hang from silver, black or brown chains or cords.
The accessories were sold at Limited Too and Justice retail stores nationwide, the Limited Too catazine (catalog), and at www.limitedtoo.com from September 2005 through May 2007 for between $2 and $10.
Consumers should immediately take this recalled jewelry away from children and return it to any Limited Too or Justice stores for a full refund and a coupon for a 15 percent discount off a future purchase.
