  • Update: Children’s Jewelry and Cadmium

    As I mentioned a couple of days ago, there’s a new concern about the safety of children’s products: the presence of high levels of cadmium in children’s jewelry.

    Yesterday, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommended that parents take away all metal jewelry marketed to children. Read CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum’s Guide for Parents: The Dangers of Heavy Metals in Children’s Jewelry at the CPSC blog.

    You can also read or watch Tenenbaum’s statement to regulators.

    I believe the CPSC isn’t authorized to issues recalls based on elevated cadmium levels, but you can stay on top of all recalls by signing up for recall notifications by email at the CPSC web site.

    1. GRRRRRRRRRRRR!! I have a 3 year old girl with TONS of jewelry marketed towards kids. I'll have to raid her stash in the middle of the night so she doesn't have a fit!
