In the last few months there have been a lot of changes to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA). The constant amendments to the law have left most consumers unclear about the improvements and the respective timelines that they should expect to see from companies like BabyLegs. For your benefit, we have created these FAQs, which we will continually update, to help you stay informed.
What is the Consumer Product Safety Act?
In response to the recent increase in reports of lead and toxins, as well as potential choking hazards of children’s’ toys, Congress passed the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) in August of 2008. The law requires extensive third-party testing requirements on all items produced for children less than 12 years of age for lead, phthalates and choking hazards. It also requires permanent labeling of each item with a date and batch number.
