The Food and Drug Administration warns parents and carers about the use of necklaces or bracelets after the death of an 18-month-old child.

The agency discourage usage of the product or the spine to relieve children's illness or to offer sensory stimulation to children with autism or attention-deficit / hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

The warning follows a report that an 18-month-old boy died after the child was taken over by amber teething necklace while waving. In another report, a 7-month-old hospital after slumbering the beads of a gold gold bracelet.

"We are concerned about the dangers that we have observed in these products and parents want to be aware that jewelry in rage puts children, including those with special needs, at the risk of serious damage and death, "said FDA Commissioner Dr. Scott Gottlieb, in a statement released Thursday.

The American Academy of Pediatrics advises parents to ring gold rings made of hard rubber or slowly molding or treating one of your fingers. In May, the FDA warned against the use of over-the-counter milk containing benzocaine-containing milk products such as Orajel or Anbesol, which states that there is evidence of links to a dangerous and potentially deadly condition of blood.
