The Bentex Group of New York is recalling about 87,000 children’s clothing sets.

The textile ink painted on the 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.

Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.

No incidents or injuries are reported.

The recall involves Bentex children’s clothing sets in nine different Disney themed styles. The item and batch numbers are printed on the clothing neck or side label.

A list of the recalled styles may be found here.

The clothing sets, manufactured in Egypt, were sold at TJMAXX, DD's/Ross, Burlington, Army & Airforce Exchange Service and other stores nationwide and online at www.amazon.com from November 2021, through August 2022, for between $5 and $25.

What to do

Consumers should immediately take the recalled children’s clothing sets away from children and contact Bentex for instructions on how to return or dispose of the recalled clothing to receive a full refund.

Consumers may contact Bentex at (800) 451-0285 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (ET) Monday through Thursday and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, by email at recall@bentex.com or online at www.bentex.com and click on “Recall” at the top of the page for more information.
