‘Made in Egypt’ and imported by The Bentex Group of New York, about 87,000 sets of children’s clothing sets have been found to contain high levels of lead exceeding either the federal lead paint ban or the federal lead content ban. These clothing sets have therefore been recalled by Bentex after being sold nationwide to TJMAXX, DD’s/Ross, Burlington and Army & Airforce Exchange Service and on Amazon.com from November 2021 through August 2022 in the price range of US $ 5-US $ 25.
It is pertinent to mention here that lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health issues.
“We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you and appreciate your understanding in this matter,” the company said.
United States Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a detailed statement in this regard and said consumers should immediately take away the recalled clothing sets from children.
Bentex Group is a family of affiliated companies engaged in the design, production and sales of apparel, home décor, electronic products and pet products worldwide.
