More children's jewelry recalled because of cadmium

About 137,000 pieces of children's jewelry sold at two stores
popular with pre-teen girls - Justice and Limited Too - have been
recalled for high levels of the toxic metal cadmium.
Tuesday's voluntary recall was announced by the U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission. It was the sixth recall of cadmium
products since early June, including about 12 million "Shrek"
movie-themed drinking glasses distributed at McDonald's. Other
recalls targeted jewelry, mostly for children.
The latest involved 19 different styles of necklaces, bracelets
and earrings distributed by Tween Brands. The company had no
immediate comment.
