Affected products

This recall involves SHEIN Toddler Girl Ruffle Trim Double Breasted Polyurethane Trench Coat with the SKU skouter03201013819.

Issue

The toddler girl ruffle trim double breasted polyurethane trench coat contains lead in excess of allowable limits, posing a risk of lead exposure to consumers.

Lead is toxic if ingested, especially to children. A range of serious health effects have been associated with exposure to lead including anemia, vomiting, diarrhea, serious brain injury, convulsions, coma, as well as effects related to the liver, kidneys, heart and immune system. In extreme cases, there have been deaths. Since lead builds up in the body, ongoing exposure to even very small amounts of lead can result in large amounts of lead being present in the body.

As of October 29, 2021, the company has received no reports of incidents or injuries in Canada, and in the United States.

What you should do

Consumers should immediately stop using the products and dispose or destroy the product. SHEIN will automatically issue a full refund to all accounts that purchased the product.

For more information, consumers can contact the company by email.
