The CPSC released a clarification today on the new lead regulations to take effect 2/10/09.

According to the CSPC, "The new law requires that domestic manufacturers and importers certify that children’s products made after February 10 meet all the new safety standards and the lead ban. Sellers of used children’s products, such as thrift stores and consignment stores, are not required to certify that those products meet the new lead limits, phthalates standard or new toy standards."

That is great news. The thrift shop in town was on the news last night and they were afraid they would have to throw out all of their children stuff. We are a very poor community and we need second hand items. Thank you for posting this.
