The CEO of Fashion Angels Enterprises has released a statement regarding some inaccurate information provided to the Daily Telegraph about the firm's jewellery items for children.
Mark Miller stated: "We meticulously test all of our products to the most stringent glboal standards; therefore we were stunned to learn that Hamleys apparently had told a London newspaper that some of our children's jewellery had tested at unacceptable lead content levels.
"We immediately investigated and have since learned that Hamleys' statement was in error. The jewellery referred to by Hamleys is the product of another manufacturer and has no connection whatsoever to Fashion Angels. Furthermore, every Fashion Angels product tested from the store was foung to meet all safety standards and requirements, without exception.
"Hamleys is aware of this misstatement and we look forward to re-opening out Hamleys store shortly.
"Safety is our company's utmost priority. All of our products meet strict US testing standards for lead in children's jewellery, which exceed requirements in the UK and Europe. We are disappointed in the inaccurate statement about our products and we stand strongly behind our company's global reputation for quality, safe products that are enjoyed by millions of children around the world."
