Miley will give you brain damage….
Miley Cyrus’ children’s jewelry line has been yanked from the shelves of Wal-Mart stores across the United States after an report revealed the accessories contained high levels of a toxic metal.
Jewelry from two Cyrus-branded lines being sold exclusively at the discount retailer — including bracelets and necklaces — contain high levels of the toxic metal cadmium, an Associated Press investigation has found. While the pieces are safe to wear, the report notes that if they are “sucked, bitten or swallowed” the cadmium could prove lethal. Cadmium exposure can cause bone softening, kidney failure, and potentially hinder the brain development of young children (not that Miley couldn’t do that on her own).
As a result of study, Wal-Mart executives have decided to halt sales of the jewelry “while we investigate its compliance with our children’s jewelry standard.”
