U.S. to Crack Down on Toxic Metals in Child Products

Chicago Tribune reports, “Federal and state watchdogs opened a new front Monday in the campaign to keep poisons out of Chinese imports.” The regulators warned “Asian manufacturers not to substitute other toxins for lead in children’s jewelry,” and began “an inquiry into cadmium found in products around the United States.”

Bloomberg News reports, “The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission will develop standards to cover toxic metals in children’s products after a report that cadmium was found in bracelets and pendants imported from China.” Commission Chairman Inez Tenenbaum “said in a taped speech for a toy safety conference in Hong Kong” that “voluntary efforts will only take us so far.”

From the American Association for Justice news release.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
