Bills Target Toxic Chemicals in Consumer Products
On Friday Sen. Carole Migden (D-San Francisco) introduced two bills aimed at banning certain toxic chemicals from consumer products. One bill (SB 1713) would expand a new state law that bans toys containing phthalates to include personal care products, such as shampoos and lotions. The second bill (SB 1712) would require manufacturers to test lipsticks for lead and report their findings to the state Department of Public Health.
