Claire's has now joined Walmart in pulling items cited in a recent Associated Press investigation.
Lab tests on more than a hundred pieces of low-priced children's jewelry found that about a dozen contained high levels of the metal Cadmium.
The contaminated items include a "Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer" charm bracelet sold at Dollar n More, and charms on a best friends bracelet sold at Claire's.
Low-cost jewelry makers often use Cadmium, because it's cheaper to work with. Chinese regulators say they will investigate the AP findings.
