An importer has recalled about 89,500 Chinese-made bracelets because a metal band can wear through the fabric covering, exposing sharp edges and posing a laceration hazard.
The Animal Snap Bracelets imported by Toysmith of Sumner, Wash., were sold at Cost Plus World Market, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store and other retailers from September 2011 to February 2012.
Eight injuries have been reported to the company.
The bracelets come in assorted metallic fabrics with animal figures including a seahorse, frog, snake, starfish, crab, lizard, dolphin and fish.
The manufacturing date codes, Toysmith name and address are printed on a sewn-in label found on the inside of the bracelet. A round paper tag is attached to the product with the product name, Toysmith information, SKU number and bar code.
