RECALL: Limited Too Stores Gift Sets Due To Lead Paint Violations

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with the firm named below, last week announced a voluntary recall about 4,000 Decorative Packaging Pearl-like Bead Attachments sold with Girl’s Gift Sets. The firm was Tween Brands Inc., of New Albany, Ohio
Surface coating on a plastic bead decorative packaging attachment contains excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard. The recalled item is a pearl-like pink bead attachment on the outside packaging of the gift sets and a zipper pull/wrist band on a cosmetic lip gloss set. The gift sets were sold under the “Sparkle by Too” line, as follows: 3-Pack Lip Gloss Wristlet (Style No. 2014), 4-Pack Body Spray (Style No. 2017), and 3-Piece Bath Set (Style No. 2018). They were sold at Limited Too retail stores nationwide, catalog and Web site from April 2007 through September 2007 for between $11 and $13 and manufactured in China.
Consumers should immediately remove this recalled decorative pearl-like bead attachment from the gift sets and return it to any Limited Too store for a $5 Limited Too coupon. In addition to the $5 coupon, consumers who choose to return the gift sets along with the packaging attachment will receive a full refund.
