HEALTH, FIREFIGHTER, CONSUMER AND SCIENCE GROUPS SEEK BAN ON HOUSEHOLD PRODUCTS WITH TOXIC CHEMICAL FLAME RETARDANTS

Healthy Children Project

by Maureen Swanson, HCP Director

LDA, with the American Academy of Pediatrics, Consumers Union, International Association of Firefighters, and other national groups, filed a petition asking the Consumer Products Safety Commission to ban four categories of products if they contain any of a certain class of flame retardant chemicals. These chemicals are harmful to children’s brain development; LDA calls on the CPSC to protect our families from toxic flame retardants!

Earthjustice has published the release to our site. It is now live. The release includes a link to the petition in case you need an electronic version to share.
