SENATE BAN LEAD IN CHILDREN’S JEWELRY

By Bob Katzen

The House gave initial approval on July 27, 2017 to legislation that would require all children’s jewelry sold in the Bay State to meet certain federal safety standards. The measure has been stuck in the Bills in Third Reading Committee since that day.

Supporters say a child who swallows or licks jewelry containing lead or cadmium is at high risk of developing very serious and potentially life-threatening health problems including kidney, bone and liver disease.
