Very adorable hazardous banned substances

How about that twirl skirt? Or that baby bonnet? Or the patchwork jeans? Or the girly camo set? Well, hardly hazardous. But banned come February 10th nonetheless, because none of these items have been tested for lead by an accredited laboratory nor have a comprehesive tracking label.

Here is the PowerPoint presentation that Wal-Mart presented to the CPSC on textile testing. They tested a whole bunch of clothing items, and all the items passed in the finished state. News flash: Textiles contain virtually no lead. We know that. They know that. Now, if we can just get an itty-bitty common-sense amendment. The emails and letters are making a difference. I really have that feeling.

Search Boutique Felony for all the Ebay listings. Also on Etsy.
