Safe Baby Products Act
This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet
Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., introduces S. 295 to direct FDA to investigate cosmetics and personal care marketed to and used by children, according to April 29 release. The bill also would require FDA "to test a wide range of children's personal-care products, publicly report the findings and establish good manufacturing practices to reduce or eliminate hazardous contaminants from products." The legislation responds to the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics' "Toxic Tub" report, which analyzed and identified children's products containing suspected carcinogens 1,4-dioxane and formaldehyde. At the time of the report's release, Gillibrand said she would explore legislation to have FDA more closely scrutinize baby products (1"The Rose Sheet" March 23, 2009, p. 3). Sens. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., and Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., are co-sponsors
