AAFA comments on Flammability Study
May '11
American Apparel & Footwear Association (AAFA) President and CEO Kevin M. Burke released the following statement on the release of “Identification of Flame Retardants in Polyurethane Foam Collected from Baby Products,” a study published by American Chemistry Society journal Environmental Science & Technology.

“More than 30 years ago, the U.S. apparel and footwear industry took the initiative to remove harmful chemicals from our supply chain. For us, providing safe clothing and shoes to American families is our number one priority.”

“The study highlights many of the concerns parents have when outfitting their children. Thankfully, apparel and footwear products continue to be safe because of the proactive steps we took so many decades ago.”

“AAFA has worked diligently to educate our members, and the industry at large, about numerous product safety and regulatory standards that must be met in order to sell safe and compliant products. Our industry meets and exceeds this challenge everyday.”

Flammability, along with product safety compliance and supply chain chemical management, will be featured discussion topics at AAFA's upcoming Product Safety and Chemical Management Seminar and Exhibition in Hollywood, CA on May 25, 2011.
