Another New Law Coming

Rate this Entry
I felt the need to share this new law. And the affects that it will have on some. This is a Federal Law so it effects all 50 states.

Law Threatens Used Clothing Stores

Thatís because a new federal safety law is written so broadly, it could force these stores to stop selling kids clothes entirely. And why?
The new law was passed after lead and other chemicals were found in mostly Chinese-made toys and clothing.

The new Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act takes effect February 10. It requires any store to certify that clothing sold for children 12 and under is free of dye laced with lead or other chemicals.

Can someone tell me what is coming next ? And what will be done with these items of old. Now that is a real deep thought. How many quilts are made of these materials ? (only because I'm still working on a quilt, made me think of just one item these materials have been used in). And how will we throw these items away?

    I just got an email about the same thing but it was saying that books were going to be banned because of potential lead. Surely these are just rumors (I hope, gulp).

    Change.org - Ideas for Changing America: Save Small Business From the CPSIA
    The United States Congress rightly recognized that the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) lacked the authority and staffing to prevent dangerous toys from being imported into the US. So, they passed the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) in August 2008. Among other things, the CPSIA bans lead and phthalates in children's products, mandates third party testing and certification, and requires manufacturers of all goods for children under the age of 12, to permanently label each item with a date and batch number.

    Anyone who produces or sells any of the following new or used items will be required to comply with the law: toys, books, clothing, art, educational supplies, materials for the learning disabled, bicycles, and more. Any uncertified item intended for children under the age of 12 will be considered contraband after February 10, 2009.

    FEEL FREE TO PASS ON THIS (whole or part).. Thanks for the update RIA.

    I felt the need to post this part to the blog that I posted earlier in the week.

    I believe this will be really interesting to follow. It's just one of those things (a throne in the side).
