If you bought jewelry from Family Dollar during the past four years you might want to double check it.

The Charlotte-based retailer is recalling some of its jewelry because it contains high levels of lead.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the jewelry was made in China and was sold under the Rachel Rose and Distinctly Basics brands. It was sold nationwide from January 2003 through August of this year.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled jewelry away from children and return it to Family Dollar for a full refund.

Here's more information from the Consumer Product Safety Commission:

The recalled jewelry was sold under the Rachel Rose and Distinctly Basics brands and includes key rings and pins with religious themes (crosses and fish symbols), key rings with "Mom" and cheerleader charms; bracelets with charms like handbags, flip flops, hearts, dresses, and flowers; silver-colored rings with designs or stones in a variety of colors; clutchless hoop earrings with decorations such as butterflies; and filigree and long drop earrings with stones in a variety of colors.
