The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced Tuesday a voluntary recall of Children's Apparel Network fleece hoodies and T-shirts due to violation of lead paint standard. The sweatshirt and T-shirts are sold in sets exclusively at Target stores.

Consumers should stop using recalled products immediately unless otherwise instructed. It is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

The surface coating on the zipper of the fleece hoodie and t-shirt sets contain excessive levels of lead, violating the federal lead paint standard.

The recalled product is a two-piece coordinated set with fleece hoodie and T-shirt. They were sold in red/white, gray/red, and black/blue color combinations and in assorted sizes from 12M to 5T. The hoodies have Disney character designs in three different styles.

No injuries have been reported.

Disney is the parent company of ABC7.
