Today, the Environmental Working Group (EWG) Action Fund released a shocking report which revealed that products marketed to children are contaminated with asbestos. This report was released as part of the Asbestos Nation campaign.
Independent testing commissioned by the EWG Action Fund confirmed that certain brands of crayons – bearing the images of popular cartoon characters such as Mickey Mouse, Power Rangers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – contain the deadly toxin. The report also reveals that some toy crime scene fingerprint kits are also tainted with asbestos.
