Comments on the Congressional hearing on the CPSIA
The PopTort has published a short comment on some aspects of the hearing on the CPSIA held last week. It includes a disturbing statement by Toy Industry Association President Carter Keithley, who apparently claimed that there are no health impacts from lead in toys. In response, Consumer Reports is reported as stating: "... it’s not okay when industry challenges the effects of lead on children’s health. It is absurd and flies in the face of good science. The American Academy of Pediatrics has repeatedly said there is no safe level of lead." For the full story go here.
