Justice jewelry recalled by Tween Brands due to cadmium

Consumer Reports News: July 13, 2010 03:18 PM

About 137,000 metal necklaces, bracelets and earrings were recalled today by Tween Brands Inc, the owner of the popular Justice brand. The metal jewelry, intended for children, has high levels of cadmium, which is toxic if ingested. 


The recall includes 19 different styles of jewelry including hearts, butterflies, cupcakes, peace signs, and crowns.  Some bear the initials “BFF”.  The jewelry was sold at Justice and Limited Too stores and online at www.shopjustice.com from November 2008 to February 2010. 


Consumers who own this jewelry should stop using it immediately, take it away from their children, and return it to a Justice or Limited Too store for a full refund.


Our take: Children often mouth jewelry, which can expose them to potentially harmful levels of cadmium or other toxic metals.  This is just one more reason to not buy inexpensive metal jewelry for your children.
