Popular Kids' Jewelry Highly Contaminated by Toxic Metals

Some Chinese manufacturers have been using the dangerous heavy metal cadmium in sparkling charm bracelets and shiny pendants being sold throughout the United States, an Associated Press investigation shows.

Bracelets and other jewelry are sold at Walmart, at the jewelry chain Claire's and at a dollar store. High amounts of cadmium also were detected in "The Princess and The Frog" movie-themed pendants. What a shame!
