Disney-themed children’s clothing sold in Shreveport recalled over lead content

 More than 80,000 sets of children’s kids are being recalled because the paint contains levels of lead that violate federal law. Some of the clothes could’ve been sold in the Shreveport area. According to our news partners at KTAL NBC 6

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said the recall involves Bentex children’s clothing sets in nine different Disney-themed styles. The clothing sets were sold at TJMAXX, DD’s/Ross, Burlington, Army & Airforce Exchange Service and other stores nationwide and online from November 2021 through August 2022.

The CPSC said exposure to lead can cause adverse health issues such as:

  • Damage to the brain and nervous system
  • Slowed growth and development
  • Learning and behavior problems
  • Hearing and speech problems
