Necklaces sold by Walmart as souvenirs of Disney's most recent princess movie -- "The Princess and the Frog" -- are being recalled because of high levels of the heavy metal cadmium, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

The recall by jewelry and trinket maker F.A.F. Inc. was prompted by Disney, which made it clear that it would not allow makers of its licensed merchandise to produce them with cadmium. Walmart recently cleared its shelves of products that tests had shown contained cadmium. Walmart also said it would work with the CPSC as the safety agency decided how to handle the unregulated carcinogen, which is also toxic to young children.
