On Wednesday, A Utah manufacturer, Allreds Design, recalled 900 baby bracelets and pacifier clips because they contained high levels of lead. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced that a 10-month-old girl, who had been exposed to the baby bracelets, was being treated for elevated lead levels.

CPSC Chairwoman, Inez Tannenbaum delivered a warning to toy manufacturers to put safety first or face lawsuits or other legal action from the the CPSC and their enforcement authorities. Safety legislation passed in 2008 gave the CPSC new powers, which Tannenbaum says she's not afraid to use. 

The product safety bill sets strict limits on lead and other chemicals as well as new rules for standards governing cribs.
