More Info on CPSIA

I have gathered some more info on the new Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act.  I’ve included a link to some Documents here:

I’d like to include some quotes from these documents here:

“The Commission is aware of the potentially signigicant economic impact that the new act could have on any remaining inventory next Feb.  However, Congress stated that children’s products that did not meet the new lead limits would be treated as “a banned hazardous substance” under the Federal Hazardous Substances Act as of February 10, 2009, and made it unlawful “to sell, offer for sale, manufacture for sale, distribute in commerce, or import into the United States” any banned hazardous substance.”

***Sadly, this includes those items your children received for Christmas this year, those toys and clothes that your children have outgrown, those boutique style clothes you love to buy, those thrift stores you frequent and so much more!**

“At the outset, the Commission’s opinion affects all products primarily intended for use by children under 12 years of age–literally hundreds of millions or more units in inventory and billions of dollars in value. ”

**Oh gee…ya think????!!!***********

I don’t know what the government was thinking..other than it could play big brother, but we simply CANNOT let this stand! 

Contact your local newspapers, your congress members, local news departments, blog about it, scream it from the rooftops!  Let our voices be heard! 

Tell the government to not take away our freedoms..but rather to stop importing the poisons from overseas…that will stop the biggest majority of the lead issues…mainly from China.  That country is going to destroy us if we aren’t careful…if they haven’t already!
