U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Lowers Lead Paint Limits in Children’s Goods

Published on Jul 15, 2011 at 9:43 pm in Consumer Awareness.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has lowered the limit for the amount of lead that may be present in children’s goods. The 3-2 vote will lower the acceptable ceiling from 300 parts per million to 100 parts per million. The dissenters in the vote claimed that the new regulations will “add costs to businesses without a commensurate safety benefit.” The change was prompted by a discovery of high levels of lead paint in toys from China.
