Wal-Mart made a recent announcement that it is pulling its entire line of Miley Cyrus-brand necklaces and bracelets from the shelves, after testing revealed high levels of the toxic metal cadmium, by the Associated Press, according to a New York Injury Lawyer. It only took three hours after the initial report for Wal-Mart to announce it would pull the jewelry, which was made exclusively for that retailer. They have promised to investigate the matter fully. The statement was made jointly with Cyrus herself and the man who designed the jewelry for the 17-year-old star of “Hannah Montana”.
Wal-Mart Stores Inc. already known of the cadmium content in both Miley Cyrus jewelry, as well as in a line of unrelated bracelet charms for months, based on an early round of tests made by a chemistry professor, but they continued to keep the items on the shelves, anyway. Until recently, Wal-Mart claimed it was too much of a difficulty to test items already on the shelves, tells a New York Injury Lawyer. Wal-Mart’s statement did not disclose whether it would remove the bracelet charms as well.
Cadmium can cause softening of the bones and kidney failure, after long-term exposure. It is also known to cause some forms of cancer, and research suggests it can be detrimental to the development of the brain in the very young. It is not known to be dangerous if simply worn in jewelry, but New York Injury Lawyers are concerned that young children may bite or suck on the jewelry.
