The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) in voluntary cooperation with manufacturer L.M. Becker & Co. Inc. announced the recall of 1.4 million toy necklaces after a child developed lead poisoning. The firm received one report of a child in Oregon who swallowed the necklace's pendant, which reportedly resulted in high lead levels in her blood. The necklace's pendant contains high levels of lead, posing a risk of poisoning to young children.

The necklaces consist of a 10-inch black cord with a 7/8-inch-diameter gray metal pendant. The metal pendant has assorted symbols on one side. The toy was sold from vending machines in malls and discount department and grocery stores nationwide from March 2002 through April 2003 for about 50 cents.

If your child has been seriously injured by a toy necklace made by L.M. Becker & Co. Inc., it may be important for you to contact an attorney who can help you protect your legal rights. Please keep in mind that there may be time limits within which you must commence suit.
