Safe Toys in California

California becomes the first state in the nation to protect children from toxic toys by banning dangerous chemicals called phthalates.

California becomes the first state in the nation to protect children from toxic toys by banning dangerous chemicals called phthalates, thanks to legislation co-sponsored by the Breast Cancer Fund and Environment California and authored by Assemblywoman Fiona Ma. Signed into law by Gov. Schwarzenegger in October, the Toxic Toys Bill requires that all child care products and children’s toys sold in California are free of phthalates starting in January 2009. The ban is considered a model for other states.
