Children's earrings sold in Florida recalled for unsafe lead levels

About 220 Sleeping Beauty Crown and Cinderella Star earring sets are being recalled because they contain high levels of lead, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday.

The jewelry was sold in Wal-Mart stores in Florida from February 2007 to June 2007 for about $5 US.

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 of lead poisoning include anemia, appetite loss, abdominal pain, constipation, fatigue, sleeplessness, irritability and headaches.

No injuries have been reported to the company.

Consumers should take the jewelry away from children and return it to the retailer for a refund.
