Bracelets and key chains with lead recalled.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Consumer Product Safety Commission is announcing the recalls of key chains and kids' bracelets that have a high level of lead.

The C-P-S-C says children's "Groovy Grabber" bracelets were manufactured by the Maryland-based A-and-A Global Industries. There is lead in the paint on the metallic band beneath the decorative plastic cover. They were sold in vending machines in malls, discount stores department stores and grocery stores nationwide between November 2005 and March 2007. People who bought them are advised to throw them out.

Additionally, about 396-thousand metal key chains made in China and sold by Dollar General stores from December 2005 through January 2007 are being recalled. They include a flip flop design, dangling charms and a letter. Those can be returned for a refund.
