New York, NY — Girl’s tops by My Michelle were voluntarily recalled by the company and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) for high levels of lead. The CPSC announced the product recall on April 12, 2011.

The product recall was issued after discovering that the jewelry and decorative trim attached to the girl’s garments contains high levels of lead, which is toxic if ingested. If the lead is ingested, it can cause adverse health effects.

“This recall involves girl’s tops and dresses sold in sizes small to extra large and 7 to 16. The garments were sold in various styles including: tops with beaded necklaces attached to the collar and tops with metallic beads attached to the collar. All styles of the tops and dresses have a black tag on the collar with pink print that reads “my michelle,” reported the CPSC press release.

The recalled clothing was sold at Burlington Coat Factory, Dillard’s, J.C. Penney, Kohl’s, Army and Air Force Exchange (AAFES), K & G Fashion Superstore and other retail stores nationwide.

Consumers are advised to contact My Michelle to receive a full refund.
