Mars Retail Group has issued a recall that involves more than 52,000 pieces of M&M-branded jewelry, including some children's jewelry.

The jewelry can contain high levels of lead. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.

No injuries or incidents have been reported in connection with these products, to date.

Sold at M&M'S World Stores in New York, Orlando, Fla., Las Vegas, and Henderson, Nev. from May 2015 to June 2016, the recalled items include earrings, rings, bracelets and necklaces that have the M&M'S logo "M" as a charm or other feature.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled jewelry, place the items out of the reach of children, and contact M&M'S World or visit an M&M'S World store to return the jewelry for a full refund.

For further information, consumers can contact M&M'S World at (866) 915-5058.
