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
high levels of the toxic metal cadmium.

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
developed the jewelry for the 17-year-old “Hannah Montana” star.

In the statement, Wal-Mart said that while the
jewelry is not intended for children, “it is possible that a few younger
consumers may seek it out in stores.”

“We are
removing all of the jewelry from sale while we investigate its
compliance with our children’s jewelry standard,” Wal-Mart said.
