RECALL: Children's Necklaces Sold Exclusively at Claire's Stores

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the Claire's Boutiques, Inc., today announced a voluntary recall of about 58,000 children's necklaces. The recalled necklaces contain high levels of lead. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects. There has been no report of incidents or injuries.
The recalled children’s necklaces have metal pendants shaped as monkeys, dolphins, and frogs holding colored marbles, a fleur de lis painted in various colors, a silver and black fairy, silver-colored letters “BFF” with rhinestones, and tiny handcuffs painted in various colors. The pendants hang from silver-colored chains. “Claire’s” or “Claire’s best friends forever” is printed on the packaging. The necklaces were sold exclusively at Claire’s between Dec. 2005 and Dec. 2006 for $5 and $11.
Parents should immediately take this recalled jewelry away from children. Consumers should return the recalled jewelry to any Claire’s store for a full refund or a free replacement product.
For additional information, call Claire’s Boutiques Inc. toll-free at 866- 859-9281 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or visit
