July 8, 2004: CPSC, Safe Jewelry Council Announce Bulk Toys Recall



WASHINGTON, DC -- A massive voluntary recall was announced today by the Consumer Products Safety Commission and four major importers of vendible toy jewelry. The suppliers are A&A Global Industries, L.M. Becker & Co., Cardinal Industries and Brand Imports, acting cooperatively as the Safe Jewelry Council.


According to the new Council, the recall covers approximately 150 million pieces of bulk vending merchandise sold from January 2002 through June 2004, including rings, bracelets and necklaces. However, only half of that number is estimated to contain lead. Operators are being urged to immediately stop selling products they suspect of containing lead and to contact their suppliers for information regarding disposal and credit.


Consumers who believe they have purchased items covered under the recall are being advised by the CPSC to dispose of them. To facilitate compliance with the recall and answer consumer questions, the Safe Jewelry Council has launched a website, http://www.toyjewelryrecall.com. 

A full copy of the press release can be obtained at the Consumer Product Safety Commission website, http://www.cpsc.gov. Consumer information is available by calling (800) 441 4234.
