Claire's has recalled about 67,000 Best Friends Yin Yang Necklaces Sets. The recalled necklaces contain high levels of lead. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects.
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. The necklaces were made in China and 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 website at www.claires.com
