The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a recall Wednesday for 87,000 sets of Disney-themed children’s clothing due to the presence of lead in the textile ink.
The recall involves clothing made by Bentex in nine different styled sets. The sets include girls’ and boys’ shorts, pants, and jegging sets with characters like Pooh Bear, Minnie Mouse, the Mandalorian and more printed on them.
The recalled batch numbers are listed in the release and can be found on the clothing on the neck or side label.
“The textile ink painted on the recalled clothing sets contains levels of lead that exceed either the federal lead paint ban or the federal lead content ban, posing a lead poisoning hazard,” the CPSC said in a release.
“Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues,” it added.
The CPSC warned exposure to lead can lead to damage to the brain and nervous system, slowed growth and development, learning and behavior problems along with hearing and speech problems.
The clothing sets were sold at stores including TJMAXX, DD’s, Ross, Burlington, Army & Airforce Exchange Service, and Amazon, along with other stores and online distributors.
They were sold between November 2021 through August 2022.
Those who are in possession of these products are instructed to take the clothing sets away from children immediately and contact Bentex for a full refund.
As of Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. ET, there have been no reported injuries from the clothing sets.
