Wal-Mart Stores Inc. says it's begun pulling a compact disc of songs called "Kids Favorites" from its shelves nationwide after learning from a supplier that it contains profanities.

Spokeswoman Melissa Hill says Wal-Mart started pulling the CDs from its shelves nationwide Monday. She says she didn't know how many CDs were being pulled. She says customers who bought the CD can return it to any Wal-Mart for a refund.

A South Bend mother says she discovered the lyrics this week when she went to play the CD for her 4-year-old son and heard a profanity.

The CD shows four smiling young children surrounded by balloons, and Christina Wilson says she assumed it was appropriate for children. She says she notified Wal-Mart about the problem Tuesday.
