RECALL: Children's Metal Jewelry by TOBY due to Lead Exposure

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with TOBY NYC, today announced a voluntary recall of the about 14,000 TOBY & ME Jewelry Sets. The recalled metal jewelry sets contain high levels of lead. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects. There were no report of injuries or incidents. The three recalled jewelry sets include: a princess pink and clear crystal bead necklace and bracelet set with a painted metallic crown pendant; a pink and white pearl necklace and bracelet set with a painted metallic poodle pendant; and a pink pearl necklace, earrings and ring set. All sets are sold in a pink gift box with “TOBY & ME” printed on the front and “TOBY & ME” hangtags attached to the packaging. They were sold at T.J. Maxx, Marshalls, and A.J. Wright from August 2006 through May 2007 for about $8 and manufactured in China.
Consumers should immediately take the recalled jewelry away from children and contact TOBY N.Y.C. for information on receiving a full refund or replacement item. For additional information, contact TOBY N.Y.C. toll-free at 866-235-0588 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, or e-mail at
