Princess and The Frog Recall

Welcome to Maria's Public Service Announcement.

The following item has been recalled due to high levels of the toxic heavy metal cadmium.

These items were sold exclusively at Walmart stores.


  1. OMG! Crazy how it had to get recalled. There's no way the manufacturer could have been completely ignorant to the fact that it was unsafe. They're only doing the recall because they got caught. Of all things in the world to cut corners on, why products designed for kids. Seriously. The items are necklaces, what kid doesn't put the charm in their mouth while wearing it. Not all the time, but now and then. Those people should be brought up on criminal charges. Shame on them.

  2. I'll spread the word, thanks.

  3. Well crap! Thanks for letting me know. No joke, my daughter got the frog necklace from my sister for Christmas and wears the damn thing all the time....grrrrrr...

  4. It's getting so you can't buy anything for your kids anymore! If it's not lead, now it's cadmium.
    There really needs to be more quality control as to what comes into this country.
    I'm all for MADE IN THE USA!!!

  5. Maria, you are really on the ball! I took the necklace back to Walmart today--THEY didn't even know the necklace had been recalled! Thankfully, because of your post, I did a little research and printed out the actual page from that I used as proof to get my refund. Still unhappy that my kid was playing with a cancer-causing substance, but got my refund....
