Snap Bracelets Pose Laceration Hazard

Toy importer, Toysmith, has recalled various animal snap bracelets manufactured in China after it became evident that it posed a danger to children.  Apparently, the metal band can wear through the fabric, causing cuts and lacerations on the child ‘snapping’ the bracelet.  There have been eight reported injuries, but no major accidents.  Parents can return the bracelets to the retailer they bought it from for a full refund.
