Miley Cyrus’ jewelry pulled from Walmart
HollywoodNews.com: Miley Cyrus launched a brand of jewelry with Walmart that included necklaces and bracelets from the rocker, and has been in stores for quite some time now.
Now the line is being pulled from the store due to findings that the pieces contain high levels of the toxic metal cadmium, which can be harmful to the body, reports AP. The Associated Press released the findings and hours later Walmart stated that they will remove the line from their store. Walmart became aware of the issue back in February, yet continued to sell the items since they garnered it too difficult to test the products already in the stores.
The toxic metal can lead to bone softening and kidney failure if exposed for a long time and can enter a person’s body if it is sucked or swallowed.
