Safety law for kid's clothing comes into effect from Feb 10

03
Jan '09
In order to keep away from hazardous effects of toxins, product safety watchdog agency, Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) introduced a law, according to which all products including clothing sold for children below 12 years must be tested for lead and phthalates.

The law will come into effect from February 10, under the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, which was approved by Congress last year in response to widespread recalls of products that posed a threat to children, including toys made with lead or lead-based paint.

Lead can be found in buttons or charms on clothing and on appliques that aere added to fabric.

Most of the clothing retailers are showing their unhappiness with the law as now they have to discard loads of children clothing.

However, there is a possibility of a partial reprieve. Reportedly the Consumer Product Safety Commission will consider exempting clothing and toys made of natural materials such as wool or wood. The commission does not have the authority to change the law but can decide how to interpret it.
