Children’s handbags recalled because they contain too much lead


Kelly Wynne recalled Mama & Me children’s mini purses because some parts contain lead levels that exceed the federal lead content ban, according to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Approximately 1,050 of the handbags were sold online at kellywynne.com and nordstrom.com from July 2020 to October 2021 for about $28, the commission said in a press release.

“The metal zipper slider, O-ring, D-ring, rivet and stud of children’s purses contain lead levels that exceed the federal lead content ban.

Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health problems,” the commission said.

The recalled handbags measure approximately 6.5 inches high, 9.5 inches wide, and 3.25 inches deep and were sold in three different colors or color combinations: coral, coral/purple, and taupe. The following SKU and UPC number combinations can be found on the order invoice: SKU MINI505 and UPC 850023783271; SKU MINI875 and UPC 850023783288; and SKU MINI500 and UPC 850023783288.

People who purchased the handbags can receive a refund from Kelly Wynne if purchased there. Those who purchased Nordstrom’s bags should contact that company.
