Child products with plasticizers a risk among babies and children

Posted on December 8, 2014 9:28 am under Defective Child Care Products

Every year, many toys and other children’s products are being recalled due to toxic chemicals found on its components. Toxic chemicals are especially harmful among young children and may pose serious health risks, such as allergies, respiratory problems, developmental delays, and even life-threatening cancers.

Among the many toxic chemicals that are harmful for babies and children is plasticizer. Also known as phthalates, toxic chemicals of this type can be found in baby powders and fragrances. It can also be found in some polymer modeling clays to make them more soft and workable. Although almost all kinds of plasticizers have been banned in the U.S., imported child products containing plasticizers may still make their way onto the market.
