GLRPPR Sector Resource: Hidden Hazards In The Nursery
Hidden Hazards In The Nursery
Over the last few years, toxic Tris flame retardants have become more prevalent in foam products after many states banned another group of toxic flame retardants known as PBDEs. Manufacturers switched to toxic Tris flame retardants despite their effect on public health.
Hidden Hazards In The Nursery, collected and tested popular baby products, including nursing pillows and car seats, for these dangerous chemicals. Our research found the vast majority contain these toxic flame retardants linked to cancer, hormone disruption, and other health effects.
