If you recently purchased any Disney merchandise, you need to be aware of a recall that is currently taking place.
Disney fans are some of the most loyal and passionate, buying all kinds of merchandise at the Parks– including Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort— but also throughout the year at popular stores and shopDisney.
However, about 87,000 Disney-themed children’s clothing sets are being recalled after the textile ink that was used to print the items showed levels of lead that exceed federal limits.
According to a People Magazine report, the toxic chemical was found on nine kid-friendly designs distributed by the Bentex Group to stores nationwide like T.J. Maxx, DD’s/Ross, Burlington, Army & Air Force Exchange Service, and online through Amazon.
The Bentex Group is advising buyers to take these clothing items away from children immediately, and use the printed numbers on the clothing neck or side label to determine if the item is recalled in the recall.
The Bentex Group put out a statement on social media, which can be read below:
Bentex is recalling the following styles of children’s clothing that have screen print designs containing lead levels that exceed the federal lead paint or lead content ban.
These products were sold at TJMAXX, DD’s/Ross, Burlington, Army & Airforce Exchange Service and additional other retail stores nationwide and online at www.Aamazon.com from November 2021 through August 2022 for between $5 to $25.
In cooperation with the CPSC, we have issued a voluntary product recall on these garments and are encouraging consumers who purchased the affected products to immediately stop using the garments and contact us 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 email@example.com , or online at www.Bentex.com/recall or www.bentex.com and click on “Recall” at the top of the page for more information.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and appreciate your understanding in this matter.

This isn’t the first recall to affect Disney fans this year. Disney products were recalled this past spring after coma-inducing ingredients were found in a couple of different items.
Inside the Magic will continue to update if any more details are released on this recall.
