Toys R Us Still Selling Toxic Toys
There's PVC and even lead -- still! -- in toys that feature beloved children characters like Dora the Explorer, Spongebob Squarepants and Mickey Mouse. And despite its promise two years ago to clean up its toys, giant retailer Toys R Us is still selling plenty of toxic toys.
The Center for Health, Environment & Justice, along with the Teamsters Office of Consumer Affairs, released a report today that showed most of 60 toys selected at random contained chemicals that can cause cancer and brain damage.
