Vermont sues Dollar Tree over sale of jewelry

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) -- The Vermont attorney general is suing Dollar Tree Stores, Inc. for selling jewelry that the state says contains toxic substances.
The attorney general's office said Tuesday that the national discount chain has violated a 2010 settlement with the state to stop selling the jewelry.
The attorney general says the items contain high amounts of lead and cadmium in violation of Vermont law.
The office says Dollar Tree sold 30,000 pieces of jewelry including rings, earrings, bracelets and necklaces through stores in Barre, Bennington, Burlington, Derby/Newport and Rutland.
A spokesman for Dollar Tree, based in Chesapeake, Virginia, said he could not comment on the lawsuit.
