The recalled jewellery was manufactured in Canada by Accessoires Rose Nanane, Montreal, Quebec. The recalled products were sold from October 2011 to January 24, 2014. Approximately 1,855 of the recalled units were sold at various retail stores and craft shows in Quebec.

Under the Children's Jewellery Regulations of the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act, it is illegal to import, advertise or sell jewellery items that appeal primarily to children under 15 years of age and contain more than 600 mg/kg total lead.

Lead and cadmium are known to be very toxic metals, especially for children. A range of serious health effects have been associated with exposure to lead and cadmium, including anemia, vomiting, diarrhea, serious brain injury, convulsions, coma, as well as effects related to the liver, kidneys, heart and immune system. In extreme cases, there have been deaths.
