Around 87,000 sets of children’s clothing are being recalled because the paint on the clothing contains levels of lead that pose a lead poisoning hazard.

The recall involves Bentex children’s clothing sets in nine different Disney-themed styles. Consumers should take the recalled clothing sets away from children and contact Bentex for instructions on how to return to dispose of the clothing to receive a refund.

The clothing sets were sold at TJ Maxx, DD’s/Ross, Burlington, Army; Airforce Exchange Service, online through Amazon and other retailers nationwide. They were sold from Nov. 2021 through Aug. 2022 for between $5 and $25.
