Claire’s Boutiques Inc., working in cooperation with the CPSC, announced a recall of “Best Friends” Charm Bracelet Sets because they contain high levels of cadmium. Cadmium, like lead, is toxic if ingested by children and can cause adverse health effects.
To date, there have been no reports of illness associated with the recalled bracelets.
The recall involves “Best Friends” bracelet sets sold nationwide at Claire’s stores. They are silver-colored chains with metal pendants.
Consumers should take the recalled items away from children and return them to any Claire’s for a replacement product or refund.
