Hazardous costume jewelry from China seized by police

Nearly 215,000 items found with high nickel content

(ANSA) - Venice, December 30 - Nearly 215,000 pieces of costume jewelry were seized by Italian finance police on Tuesday.
    They said the items contained a dangerously high nickel content and lacked the minimum security requirements for commercial sale in Italy.
    The unusually shiny items, imported from China and worth nearly 600,000 euros in all, had already been placed on store shelves and had been falsely marked "nickel free".
    Tests were being conducted on the merchandise to determine the origin of production.
