Disney charm brecelets manufactured by High IntenCity Corp of New Jersey have been found to have excessive levels of lead.

Testing of the Hannah Montana, Disney Faeries and High School Musical jewelry was conducted by the Center for Environmental Health. The California agency reports finding lead levels which exceeded the 600 parts per million maximum permitted by Federal guidelines.

The Disney jewelry was sold at Barnes & Noble. Company spokeswoman Mary Ellen Keating stated "We have already pulled the product from the web site" and added that the stores have been told to remove the items until further testing is complete.
