Get your toys tested for safety!

A NewsAnchorMom reader let me know about a not-for-profit company that is busy testing toys for lead and other dangerous metals in toys. The regulations are getting stricter, but there is still no new law preventing tainted toys from getting putting on store shelves.

I don't know how good of a job they do, but lets you fill out a request for toys you think need to be tested. Other people can vote on the list to make your toy a priority. It looks like they test a handful of products each month. Here's the link to request a certain toy be tested. You can also look at the list of toys that have already been tested and see how much lead, cadmium and arsenic are in them.
