Things Remembered Recalls Children's Jewelry Due to High Lead Content

Things Remembered is recalling certain silver bracelets and charm necklaces because the clear surface coating contains lead in excess of federal safety limits.  The silver bracelets have 10 silver hearts and circle links and a single heart-shaped charm, while the necklaces are gold-plated with three charms: a pink ice cream cone, a pink crystal cupcake, and a gold-plated engraved SWEET tag.  They were sold at Things Remembered stores nationwide as well as on the website from February 2015 through June 2016.

Consumers are urged to immediately take the recalled jewelry away from children and contact Things Remembered for a full refund.

Lead is a chemical known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, and other reproductive harm.  Under Proposition 65, companies offering products for sale that contain lead must provide California consumers with a warning of the risks of exposure.

The Chanler Group represents citizen enforcers who, acting in the public interest, commence actions against businesses offering products for sale in California that contain chemicals known to cause cancer or reproductive harm without first providing the health hazard warning required by Proposition 65. Citizen enforcers bringing Proposition 65 actions in the public interest may obtain a Court Judgment imposing civil penalties, an injunction requiring reformulation of products, and/or provision of health hazard warnings.
