Wal-Mart yanks leaded key chains

June 22, 2008|From Times Wire Services

Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is recalling about 39,000 "Hip Charm" key chains made in China because the chain's charms can have high levels of lead, which is toxic if ingested.

An additional 12,000 of these key chains were recalled in April after a child who was mouthing a key chain was discovered to have high blood levels of lead. They were sold at Wal-Mart stores from April 2005 through this month. For more information, call Wal-Mart at (800) 925-6278, or go to www.walmartstores.com or www.cpsc.gov.
