Washington (AP) The Consumers Product Safety Commission is recalling keychains and kids' bracelets that have a high level of lead paint.

The CPSC says children's' "Groovy Grabber" bracelets were manufactured by the Maryland-based A and A Global Industries. The lead paint is on the metallic band beneath the decorative plastic cover. They were sold in vending machines in malls, discount stores, department stores and grocery stores nationwide between November 2005 and March 2007. People who bought them are advised to throw them out.

Additionally, about 396,000 metal key chains made in China and sold by Dollar General Stores from December 2005 through January 2007 are being recalled. They include a flip flop design, dangling charms and a letter. Those can be exchanged for a refund.

Lead is toxic and can cause adverse health effects on young children.

No injuries have been reported.
