WASHINGTON, DC (KAIT) - My Michelle, of New York, NY and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) have announced a voluntary recall of approximately 90,000 girl's tops.

According to the CPSC, the shirts were 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 from January 2011 through March 2011 for about $38.

The CPSC said jewelry and decorative trim attached to the clothing contains high levels of lead that is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects. No incidents or injuries have been reported.

The tops and dresses were sold in sizes small to extra large and 7 to 16. The clothing comes in various styles that include beaded necklaces attached to the collar and tops with metallic beads attached to the collar. All garments have a black tag with pink print that reads "mymichelle," and are manufactured in Vietnam.

Buyers should immediately take the clothing away from children and contact My Michelle at (800) 960-8791 between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. ET Monday through Friday, or visit the firm's website at www.mymichellerecall.com to get a full refund. Consumers can also email the firm at customerservice@mymichellerecall.com
