For everybody buying presents for children this holiday season, beware of toxic chemicals in child products. The state of Washington has a law requiring manufacturers to disclose toxic chemicals in these child products sold in their state. 66 hazardous chemicals have been identified.
Now if we could only get our South Carolina Legislature to care as much about our kids by letting our retailers and consumers know what dangers are lurking in child products coming into South Carolina.
