Kmart is removing all jewelry marked "lead-free" from its shelves.
Why? Well, because many of the supposedly lead-free pieces tested turned out to have high concentrations of lead. One charm reportedly was 52 percent lead.
So far, all of the contaminated pieces, including matching earrings and necklaces, have been cheap costume jewelry carrying the Accessories brand.
