'Princess and Frog' pendant recalled for cadmium

5 years ago January 29, 2010 Jan 29, 2010 Friday, January 29 2010 Friday, January 29, 2010 3:50:11 PM EST in News

Federal consumer safety regulators announced a recall of "The Princess and The Frog" movie-themed children's pendants, citing high levels of the toxic heavy metal cadmium.

The recall affects about 55,000 items sold exclusively at Wal-Mart stores.  It comes several weeks after an Associated Press investigation reported high levels of cadmium in the pendants and other children's metal jewelry imported from China.

This is the first time any consumer product has been recalled in the United States because of cadmium, a known carcinogen that recent research also suggests can harm brain development in children.
