Mass. cancer charity recalling bracelets over lead - The Boston Globe: "The Friends of Mel Foundation said tests conducted on several bracelets last week confirmed they contained high levels of lead. A spokeswoman blamed a supplier based in China that had promised in writing none of the materials it provided contained the toxic element. 'The organization feels like they were lied to and were given bad product,' said spokeswoman Jackie Herskovitz. 'It's such a shame.'"
