Illinois legislation to ban lead toys

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Media

The Illinois legislature has approved a bill to ban toys and other items containing anything more than a trace of lead. The bill comes after a 4-year-old boy died after swallowing a small lead filled charm and other toys and children's products have been recalled due to dangerous amounts of lead.

I have a little thing for Barack Obama, a senator from Illinois and when I hear his name in the news my ears perk up. He has taken a similar bill to the national level. [Thanks, Elizabeth!]
