Children's jewelry meets safety standards, FJTA

Jan '10
Fashion Jewelry Trade Association (FJTA) Executive Director Michael Gale issued the following statement:

"The top priority of FJTA member companies is the safety of consumers. Our members not only comply with new lead standards and other new safety regulations contained in the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA), many also have been voluntarily testing for other metals like cadmium.

"Safety is always our number one concern. Children's jewelry made by our members meets federal lead limits, and test reports from our members to date indicate that children's jewelry does not contain levels of cadmium that could cause health risks. We are continuing to investigate and are in contact with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and retail customers and look forward to analyzing data for the jewelry tested by Ashland University for the story published in the Associated Press earlier this week. FJTA has not been provided this data to date.

"We are also pleased to announce the formation of a FJTA Safety Task Force to work with the CPSC, consumer and industry groups on jewelry safety issues, including developing a standard for all metals in children's jewelry, including cadmium and nickel."

The Fashion Jewelry Trade Association, based in North Kingstown, Rhode Island, represents producers, suppliers and retailers of fashion jewelry. Its 200+ members strongly support safe jewelry for all consumers and advocate the adoption of risk-based standards that assure safety and maintain business competitiveness.
