  • One recall yesterday: Cadmium necklaces

    A couple of weeks ago, I reported that cadmium has been found in children’s jewelry. It looks like the Consumer Product Safety Commission has been working hard to get those products off the market despite the lack of laws regulating cadmium content.

    If you think you have the following item(s), click through to the CPSC press release for more details:

    FAF Inc. Recalls Children’s Necklaces Sold Exclusively at Walmart Stores Due to High Levels of Cadmium

    Even though this recall is limited to the necklaces sold at Walmart, remember the CPSC’s recommendation to remove all metal jewelry marketed to children.
