The Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled 79,000 bracelets from a children’s book called "Dreamworks Trolls: It's Hug Time!" because the metal core of the bracelet can cut through the fabric, possibly injuring children.

The bracelet has an inner, flexible metal band wrapped in a purple fabric covering with a pink fabric flower.

Officials said there were five reports of the bracelets cutting kids' hands and fingers.

The book was sold nationwide in stores and online from September 2016 through August 2017.
