In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), TOBY N.Y.C. announced a voluntary recall of 23,500 jewelry sets due to high levels of lead. Lead can be toxic if ingested by small children and can lead to serious adverse health affects.
Consumers are advised to discard any recalled jewelry sets they may have in the house and contact TOBY N.Y.C for a full refund or replacement.
In August, the company recalled 14,000 sets of jewelry also due to high levels of lead in the toy jewelry. The latest recall was expanded to include two additional styles:
A pink crystal and wood bead necklace and bracelet set with a monkey pendant; and a pink and clear crystal bead necklace and bracelet set with a heart pendant. All sets are sold in a pink gift box with “TOBY & ME” printed on the front and “TOBY & ME” hangtags attached to the packaging.
