Nearly 90,000 children’s clothing sets have been recalled over lead levels, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Wednesday.
According to CPSC, Bentex is recalling about 87,000 children’s clothing sets in nine different Disney-themed styles because the textile ink has lead levels that exceed either the federal lead paint or lead content ban, posing a lead poisoning hazard.
Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.
