Woodbridge, IL — EKSuccess Brands, a division of Wilton Brands Inc., and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have voluntarily recalled American Girl Crafts™ Pearly Beads & Ribbon Bracelets kits for violations of the federal lead paint standard. The CPSC announced the product recall on June 8, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the surface coating on some of the beads contains excessive levels of lead, which is a violation of federal laws.

“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,” reported the CPSC.

Consumers are advised to contact EKSuccess Brands to receive a full refund. In the meantime, parents should remove the kits from their children’s possession.
