We stay ahead
Even before lead became an issue in the U.S., our products met the very stringent international standard developed by the European Union (EN-71 Part 3) which requires that there be less than 90g/kg (or 90 parts per million) of leachable or soluble lead on the interior of the product.
Other standards include:
- The U.S. F.D.A. (no detectable, leachable lead in interior liners)
- The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (less than 1ug/100cm2 /wipe)
- California’s Proposition 65 and EN-71 Part 3 specific for products intended for children under 12 years of age or under (less than 90 parts per million on lead in surface coating or paint, less than 100 parts per million on the four individual Phthalates: DBP, BBP, DEHP, DNHP).
