It appears Claire's was selling jewelry intended for children which was almost 100% lead. Health Canada has forced a recall. I noticed this as I was walking past the local newspaper box--I haven't seen any mention anywhere else.

Here is a link to the article.

It appears to only be a couple of necklaces and a keychain, so probably no real financial impact, however this sort of thing can be a PR nightmare.
