Here are two stories from the last week about children''s necklaces that have been recalled because of lead poisoning concerns. This may not apply to anyone here, but better safe than sorry.


1. Name of Product: Children''s Mood Necklaces and Diva Necklaces
Units: About 51,600 necklaces
Importer: Really Useful Products Inc., of Darien, Ill.
Hazard: The recalled jewelry contains high levels of lead. Lead is toxic
if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects.
