Take Action Against Dangerous Toys!

Allow me to jump on the “no lead paint!” bandwagon…

We’ve all heard the 80% statistic–that 80% of toys sold in the U.S. are made in China. After reading here about how the Consumer Product Safety Commission (the organization “charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more than 15,000 types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction.”) has only one full-time employee responsible for testing toys. No, seriously. Just one.

After reading just a few scary statistics, I zipped over the to the Consumer’s Union Action Fund’s handy automatic letter-writer to send an email to my House and Senate representatives. It was quick, painless, and I urge you to do the same! Click here to email your representatives.
