LEWISTON, N.Y. (AP) - Federal authorities say a shipment of baby clothes will be destroyed after testing positive for lead.

Customs and Border Protection said Friday that the shipment was stopped at the U.S.-Canadian border in Lewiston, north of Buffalo, in March.

The clothing, made in China, was seized April 23 after testing confirmed that parts of the button-down pink outfits contained excessive levels of lead.

Authorities say the U.S.-bound shipment was seized under the federal Hazardous Substance Act.
