Bentex Recalls Children's Clothing Sets

New York-based Bentex Group has recalled various children's clothing sets due to violation of the federal lead paint and lead content ban, and lead poisoning risk, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said.

The recall involves about 87,000 units of Bentex children's clothing sets in nine different Disney themed styles. These include Jersey Leggings Set, Bike Shorts Set, Girls Shorts Set, Boys Shorts Set, 3 Pack Shorts Set, Children's Shorts Set, and Children's Leggings Set with various batch numbers.

The clothing sets were manufactured in Egypt and 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.

According to the agency, 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. Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.

However, the company has not received any reports of illness related to the recalled product to date.

Consumers are urged to immediately take the recalled children's clothing sets away from children and contact Bentex for a full refund.

In recent recalls, William Carter Co. of Atlanta, Georgia recalled about 50,800 units of Infant's Yellow Footed Fleece Pajamas with Animal Graphic citing small metal wire pieces in the pajamas that can cause puncture and laceration hazards to young children.
