F.A.F. has recalled about 30,000 lip gloss and jewelry sets sold exclusively at Wal-Mart. The lobster claw clasp on the bracelet contains high levels of lead, which is toxic and can cause adverse health effects if ingested.
The recalled three-piece sets contain a rectangle-shaped lip gloss container, a heart-shaped locket necklace, and a charm bracelet. The following models are included in the recall:
Item | Model Number | UPC
Frog Set | 6709-4250 | 72783357703
Monkey Set | 6709-4251 | 72783357704
Cat Set | 6709-4252 | 72783357705
"Faded Glory", the model number, and UPC are printed on the product's hangtag.
These sets were manufactured in China and sold at Wal-Mart stores nationwide from May 2008 through June 2008 for about $6.
Consumers should immediately take the bracelet away from children and return the set to any Wal-Mart store for a full refund. For additional information, contact F.A.F. Inc. at (800) 949-3311 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's Web site at www.faf.com
