A pop princess has been deemed toxic -- and, no, it's not Britney.
Walmart has pulled Miley Cyrus's jewelry line from its shelves after the Associated Press discovered that the bling contained toxic levels of cadmium, the news service reports.
The mass retailer claims that the dangerous Miley Cyrus/Max Azria jewelry was "designed for and marketed to older audiences" (because we all know grown women want to dress like "Hannah Montana") and was "not intended for children, though it is possible that a few younger consumers may seek it out in stores," according to a press statement released to the AP.
"We are removing all of the jewelry from sale while we investigate its compliance with our children's jewelry standard," Walmart told the source.
You do that. In the meantime, we'll just have to make do with our Demi Lovato diamond collection.
Though it noted that the jewelry was not actually harmful by simply being worn, the AP's report found that its levels of cadmium -- which can cause bone softening and kidney failure -- were unsafe if the pieces were "sucked, bitten or swallowed.".
The AP also alleges that Walmart knew about the cadmium risk as early as February. Naughty, naughty.
At least shoppers are safe from Miley's toxic jewelry for now. But who will save us from her screaming fans?
