About 20,000 Essentials for Kids jewelry sets, imported by Future Industries, have been recalled because they contain high levels of lead, which is toxic.
The recalled jewelry sets include a necklace, bracelet and pair of earrings made of green, blue or pink plastic beads. The necklaces have painted metallic pendants in the shape of shoes, girls, blackboards or school buses. The other recalled jewelry sets include a necklace and seven pendants shaped as sandals, purses or butterflies. "Essentials for kids" is printed on the packaging.
Consumers can return the sets to the stores of purchase for a full refund or contact Future Industries at (800) 929-0006.
