Tell the CSPC: Finalize Furniture Flammability Standard

New tests by EWG and Duke University show that California children had, on average, 15 times greater exposure to a potentially harmful flame retardant than in their mothers. For years, Americans have been exposed to a cancer-causing chemical, TDCIPP, without their knowledge, and without adequate health and safety testing.

Manufacturers have been using large amounts of flame retardants in furniture and baby products for decades in order to comply with California law. California recently determined that these chemicals were unnecessary for making furniture safe, and updated its rules so companies can avoid adding flame retardants to foam cushioning.

Stand with EWG and tell the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission that we need a national furniture flammability standard that limits the use of toxic flame retardants.
