As you may know, certain products that we sell are subject to safety rules established by the Consumer Product Safety Commission ("CPSC"). We strive to ensure that our products meet applicable consumer protection requirements, including those arising under the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (the "Act") and the Flammable Fabrics Act (the "FFA"). Specific information regarding the Act and the FFA is set forth below.
The Act limits the level of total lead in products intended for use by children 12 years of age or younger. Specifically, all children's products manufactured after August 14, 2011 must not contain more than 100 parts per million of total lead in accessible parts. In addition, you should be aware that the CPSC has determined that textiles consisting of natural or manufactured fibers, either dyed or undyed, do not exceed the lead content limits under the Act. In general, our fabrics would not be considered children's products. Moreover, we have no reason to believe that lead is contained in our fabrics, and in furtherance of the Act's purposes, representative samples of certain fabrics have been tested in a third-party certified laboratory. We are pleased to say that in each case, the analytical results did not detect any lead in the fabrics to a level of 10 ppm, which essentially indicates that they are lead free.
In addition, the Act also bans certain phthalates which are in children's toys and child care articles. While our fabrics would not be considered to be children's toys or child care articles, we have tested certain representative samples of our fabrics for phthalates in a third-party certified laboratory. Again, the testing did not detect any phthalates in the fabrics.
For our non-children's product fabrics that are subject to the CPSC's flammability test requirements under the FFA, we have implemented a reasonable testing program for those fabrics subject to flammability testing, and results have been compliant with regulatory requirements.
We are committed to providing our customers with the highest quality products that are safe for their intended purpose, and we will continue to do so. As always, please contact us if you have questions.
