Reebok recalls bracelets over led poisoning
NEW YORK, Mar 23 (Reuters) Reebok International is recalling about 300,000 promotional bracelets after a child reportedly died of lead poisoning after swallowing one, U.S. authorities said on Thursday.
The eight-inch-long metal bracelets, with a heart-shaped charm with the name ''Reebok'' engraved on one side, were distributed as gifts with the purchase of various styles of children's footwear.
Reebok International was acquired by German sporting goods maker Adidas earlier this year.
