Federal regulators are recalling more children’s jewelry due to high levels of the toxic metal cadmium. This time it’s charm bracelets with a “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” theme sold at dollar-type stores. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission says the items should immediately be taken away from children and thrown away. As we have reported, Cadmium emerged as a major safety concern earlier this year after an Associated Press investigation reported that some children’s jewelry contained as much as 91% of the heavy metal, a carcinogen that also can damage kidneys and bones. This recall is the second related to cadmium by the USCPSC, which says it continues to investigate the issue.
