Children's Butterfly Necklaces And Jewelry Recall

Public is advised to stop using the following consumer products: "Children's Butterfly Necklaces," imported from China by GeoCentral of Napa, California; and "Essentials for Kids Jewelry Sets," imported from China by Future Industries of Cliffwood Beach, New Jersey.

Both manufacturers, in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, are voluntarily recalling the products.


These products contain high levels of lead, which is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects.

"Children's Butterfly Necklaces"

The recalled necklaces consist of a multi-colored butterfly pendant on a multi-colored seed bead 16-inch necklace. The product's packaging includes a white hang card with "GeoJewelry" printed on the front underneath "GeoCentral." These necklaces were sold at souvenir and gift stores nationwide from January 2006 through May 2007 for about $2.

Consumers should immediately take the key chains away from children and return the product to the store where purchased for a refund.
