(WBNG Binghamton) About 90,000 girl's tops have been recalled by My Michelle of New York, NY.

The jewelry and decorative trim attached to the girl's garments contain high levels of lead.

Lead is toxic if ingested by young children and can cause adverse health effects.

No incidents or injuries from the lead have been reported.

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 "mymichelle."

The tops 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.

Owners should immediately take the recalled garments away from children and contact My Michelle for information on receiving a full refund.
