Claire's Recalls Children's Metal Necklaces

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Claire’s Boutiques, announced a voluntary recall of the Best Friends Yin Yang Necklaces Sets due to a risk of lead exposure. Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed.

This recall involves a set of two necklaces that have a silver-colored metal bead type chain and a lobster-claw clasp. One of the necklaces has a single, metal pendant with the word “Best” attached to a black, yin metal pendant. The other necklace has the word “Friends” attached to a white, yang metal pendant. They were sold at Claire’s stores nationwide from April 2007 through August 2008 for about $8.

Consumers should immediately take these recalled products away from children and return them to any Claire’s store for a full refund. For additional information, call Claire’s at (866) 859-9281 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. ET Monday through Friday or visit the firm’s Web sites at
