Toxic metal prompts charm bracelet recall

Posted on Friday, May 14th, 2010 at 7:53 am    

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission found dangerous levels of cadmium in children’s “Best Friends” charm bracelets sold by Claire’s Boutiques Inc., and about 19,000 of the bracelet sets have been recalled as a result. No related injuries have been reported yet.

Inhaling dangerous levels of cadmium can cause lung damage, according to the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, and consuming the toxic metal can irritate the stomach, possibly leading to diarrhea and vomiting. Long-term exposure to the metal, even at lower levels, can damage the kidneys. The Department of Health and Human Services lists cadmium as a known human carcinogen as well. Consumers can return the bracelets to any Claire’s store for a full refund or replacement product.

If your child has been exposed to a faulty or dangerous product, contact the New Jersey product liability lawyers of Levinson Axelrod, P.A., today by calling 800-346-5529.
