Oh, my, I didn't know this and purchased a few online. Is it not okay to wear the charms with the bracelet/necklace? Thank you for this information!

I found both the bracelet and necklace at a store two days ago. I asked to woman this very same question, and she assured me that they were OK. But, to be on the safe side I am not giving these to my daughter until I speak with someone from ganz. I suggest you do the same!!! My moto better safe than sorry

Yes, they do have lead. That is the main reason they discontinued them!

Also think of all the little kids that play webkinz. They charms could end up in their mouth.... or worse.

Remember that not everything on the internet is true.
I think that it's okay, just be a little cautious, but they probably discontinued it to be on the safe side, just in case so they wouldn't be sued. Some people sue for the smallest of reasons, so Ganz was just trying to be safe so that their webkinz could go on.
