Today Illinois Senate Bill 2860 was signed into law. PA 95-1019 will require warning labels on children’s jewelry or painted toys (both for children up to age 12) or child care products designed or intended for use by the manufacturer to facilitate the feeding, relaxation or sleeping of children under six IF the product contains more than 40 parts per million (ppm) of lead.
The warning labels must state at a minimum: “WARNING: CONTAINS LEAD. MAY BE HARMFUL IF EATEN OR CHEWED. MAY GENERATE DUST CONTAINING LEAD.”
