Powerpuff Girls necklaces recalled for lead poisoning hazard

About 48,000 children's Powerpuff Girls necklaces are being recalled because they contain high levels of lead, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Wednesday.

The necklaces have multi-coloured pendants that hang from a black cord and were sold at carnivals, amusement parks, family entertainment centers, online retailers and discount stores in the U.S. from March 2003 through November 2006.

Consumers should return the necklaces for a refund.
