Wal-Mart said Wednesday it is pulling an entire
line of Miley Cyrus-brand necklaces and bracelets from its shelves after
tests performed for The Associated Press found the jewelry contained

In a
statement issued three hours after AP’s initial report of its findings,
Wal-Mart said it would remove the jewelry while it investigates. The
statement was issued along with Cyrus and Max Azria, the designer that

In the statement, Wal-Mart said that while the
