October 12, 2018- Kohn, Swift & Graf is currently investigating national retailers for allegedly selling adult jewelry that contains toxic metal.

Your Jewelry Could be Filled with Toxins Making you Sick

Lab testing conducted by the Center for Environmental Health revealed some jewelry sold with women’s dresses and shirts was purely cadmium, which can cause cancer and reproductive harm after prolonged exposure. In addition, cadmium can damage the kidneys and bones.

A majority of the contaminated items were sold at Ross, which operates more than 1,400 stores in 38 states. Other national retailers include Nordstrom Rack and Papaya. Ross has addressed this issue with their supplier, but has not revealed whether or not it has pulled suspect jewelry from stores. Papaya, which operates more than 100 retail locations nationwide, has recalled the products where contamination was found and stopped buying from the manufacturer in China.
