The Road to Toxin Free Toys

Toy recalls have us worried, but what about the stuffed animals, games and products that we don't hear anything about? Since the government doesn't impose stiff regulations on toy companies, how can we ensure the stuff we're handing our children to play with is safe?The Ecology Center, a Michigan-based nonprofit organization's latest project in conjunction with the Washington Toxic Coalition and other environmental health groups, is a website where parents can check more than 1,200 children's toys by name, type or brand for harmful chemicals — lead, cadmium, arsenic and other toxins.
