Children’s products containing toxic chemicals are for sale in New York City. These chemicals are dangerous, unnecessary, and pose health risks to children. They can cause cancer, trigger asthma, lower IQ, and damage vital organs.
This report, produced by Clean and Healthy New York, Center for Environmental Health and WE ACT for Environmental Justice, documents our project to purchase, in the five boroughs of New York City, products intended to be used by children on a daily basis and test them for the presence of some of the most hazardous chemicals. What we found should be troubling to all, especially parents and those who make policy in New York City.
