California Attorney General Kamala Harris has reportedly filed a lawsuit against 16 jewelry suppliers and retailers alleging that they sell children’s jewelry as lead-free even though the products contain “more than 1,000 times the allowable level.” California v. Joia Trading, Inc., No. n/a (Cal. Super. Ct., filed July 2012). According to a news source, the state seeks fines of up to $2,500 for each violation of state health and safety laws and the Business and Professions Code. Claiming that the defendants have continued to offer non-compliant products for sale despite widespread publicity about the dangers of lead exposure and warnings from the Department of Toxic Substances Control, Harris also apparently seeks injunctive relief.
