About 137,000 pieces of imported children's jewelry sold at two stores popular with preteen girls--Justice and Limited Too--were recalled Tuesday for high levels of cadmium, the latest in a series of recalls involving the toxic metal.
The voluntary recall, announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, was the sixth callback since The Associated Press first released findings of an investigation into cadmium in children's jewelry.
