This overreaching law treats the belongings (clothing, bedding, toys, equipment, books, school supplies and dishes) of 12 year olds as though they posed exactly the same threat as the belongings of 1 year olds. 12 year olds do not typically suck on their socks, so why are socks subject to expensive, redundant lead testing?
The law requires mandatory, expensive, redundant testing for ALL possible, and sometimes impossible and merely pretended, lead in all products for children 12 and under- books, blankets, bikes, underwear, socks, shoes, helmets, school supplies,etc.
This law, as written, treats American books, New Zealand yarn, and Canadian shirts as though they were as dangerous as toys from China, which the facts do not support.
Congress should have only required lead testing for those products and sources shown to be a high risk of lead. Instead, the law is backwards.
