(WHNT) – Children’s clothing produced by Bentex has been recalled due to exposure to lead paint.
According to our press partner CBS and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), the clothing sets have been sold at TJ Maxx, Ross, DD’s Discount, Burlington, Army and Airforce Exchange Service and more.
Amazon also sold the set between November 2021 and August 2022. As of November 23, 2022, approximately 87,000 units are being recalled, according to CPSC.
The sets feature Disney characters, like Minnie Mouse and Baby Yoda. The patterns are screen printed on the fabric.
The CPSC warns that the sets contain levels of lead paint that exceed either the federal ban on lead paint or the federal ban on lead content, which can lead to lead poisoning.
In an Instagram post from Bentex, they state, “we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and appreciate your understanding in this regard,” and ask customers to immediately stop using the sets.
Although no injuries have yet been reported to CPSC, Bentex asks that you contact them immediately to find out how to return or dispose of the garments for a full refund. On the CPSC website, you can see pictures and lot numbers of the sets that are being recalled.
You can contact Bentex at 800-451-0285 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. ET Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday. You can also reach them by email at email@example.com.
