SmileMakers Recalls Children's Jewlery Due To Cadium Risk

Comments Off

SmileMakers Inc., in cooperation with the CPSC, issued a recall of more than 66,000 Children’s Happy Charm Bracelets and Foot Ball Rings, due to high levels of Cadium. Cadium, like lead, is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects.

To see photos of the recalled items, please refer to the CPSC News Release. The items were distributed at doctor and dentists offices nationwide from June 2005 through March 2010.

Consumers are advised to take the recalled jewelry from children immediately and to discard it.

For more information, call SmilleMakers at (877) 390-5470. Or visit their Web site at www.smilemakers.com.

Last week high levels of lead prompted the recall of more than 7,300 Children’s Tiara’s sold by Wilton Industries.

On June 6th, McDonald’s recalled 12 million Shrek themed glasses because testing – after an anonymous tip – found the heavy metal cadmium in the designs on the glass.
