Things Remembered of Highland Heights, Ohio, is recalling about 7,000 silver bracelets and 3,400 charm necklaces in the U.S. and Canada.
The clear surface coating on the bracelets and necklaces contain lead in excess of the allowable limit. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.
No incidents or injuries have been reported.
This recall involves silver heart bracelets and sweet charm necklaces for children.
The 6-inch, silver-plated bracelets have 10 silver hearts and circle links, a lobster claw clasp, and one silver heart-shaped charm.
The necklaces are gold plated on a 13-inch box chain with a 2-inch extender, a lobster claw closure and three charms – a pink ice cream cone, a pink crystal cupcake and a gold-plated tag with “SWEET” engraved.
The jewelry, manufactured in China, was sold exclusively at Things Remembered stores nationwide and online at www.thingsremembered.com from February 2015, through June 2016, for about $25.
