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.
