Crimzon Rose Accessories is recalling about 5,300 silver stud earring sets sold through Kmart stores because they contain high levels of lead.
The oval-shaped earrings marked with the label ACCESSORIES on its packaging were sold from October 2004 through March 2007, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday.
Children absorb lead more easily than adults and are more vulnerable to poisoning. Exposure to high levels of lead can cause vomiting, diarrhea, convulsions, coma or death. Symptoms include anemia, appetite loss, abdominal pain, constipation, fatigue, sleeplessness, irritability and headaches.
No injuries have been reported to the company.
Consumers should return the earrings to the store for a free replacement.
