Nov. 23 (UPI) -- More than 80,000 pieces of children's clothing, featuring Disney and Star Wars characters, are being recalled over a risk of lead poisoning.

Bentex, which makes the kids clothes, issued the recall after the Consumer Product Safety Commission found the lead content in the textile ink used to create the characters exceeded federal standards.

Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can lead to health issues including damage to the brain and nervous system, as well as developmental and learning problems. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says there have been no reports of any injury.

The clothing recall includes nine Bentex children's clothing sets, with Minnie Mouse, Winnie the Pooh, Disney Descendants and baby Yoda, sold at TJMAXX, DD's/Ross, Burlington, Army & Airforce Exchange Service, as well as online at Amazon between November of 2021 and August of 2022.
