Ensuring Non-toxic Toys

We worked hard to get a federal ban on phthalates in toys. Now, children are protected from these toxic chemicals linked to breast cancer.

In a major victory for parents and public health advocates, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act is signed into law, which, thanks to Breast Cancer Fund efforts, includes an amendment banning six toxic phthalates from children's toys and childcare articles. The federal law requires that childcare products and children's toys sold in the United States after February 2009 be free of phthalates, which contribute to breast cancer risk.
