(WBNG Binghamton) EKSuccess Brands Recalls American Girl Crafts Jewelry Kit Due to Violation of Lead Paint Standard

About 75,000 American Girl Crafts™ Pearly Beads & Ribbon Bracelets kits are involved in this recall.

The surface coating on some of the beads contains excessive levels of lead, which is prohibited under federal law.

This recall involves the Pearly Beads & Ribbon Bracelets kit distributed under the American Girl Crafts name with a SKU number of 30-585331.

The SKU number is located on the back of the package in the lower right corner.

The kit contains 56 pieces. The beads in the jewelry kit are pink, blue, orange and white. Some pink beads have darker pink butterflies imprinted on them. The ribbons in the kit are orange, red, blue and purple.

The products were sold at Michaels Stores and other retailers nationwide from September 2009 through June 2011 for about $8.

Consumers should immediately take the recalled kits and any finished bracelets made from the kits away from children and contact the company for a full refund.
