Health Canada's sampling and evaluation program has revealed that the recalled jewellery contains lead in excess of allowable limits. It also contains cadmium in excess of guidance levels proposed by Health Canada.
Under the Children's Jewellery Regulations of the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act, it is illegal to import, advertise or sell jewellery items that appeal primarily to children under 15 years of age and contain more than 600 mg/kg total lead. Lead and cadmium are highly toxic, especially to children. A range of serious health effects have been associated with exposure to lead and cadmium, including anemia, vomiting, diarrhea, serious brain injury, convulsions, coma, as well as effects related to the liver, kidneys, heart and immune system. In extreme cases, there have been deaths.
Neither Health Canada nor Créations DPR has received any reports of incidents or illnesses related to the use of these products.
For more information on the risks and symptoms of lead exposure and cadmium exposure, visit the Government of Canada website Lead and cadmium in children's jewellery.
