USA Today article

USA Today on CPSIA

Finally getting accurate major media coverage.

USA Today on CPSIA part II

Well, maybe not entirely accurate. In this follow up, they say "The commission also tried to ease the worries of thrift store owners who sell children's clothes. The agency said it won't prosecute anyone for distributing or selling most clothes, such as T-shirts and baby blankets."

Excuse me for mentioning that only, say tshirts and socks, are made entirely of exempt fabric. That would certainly not constitute 'most' clothes. And blankets are still subject to phthalate testing. And the release did not say they won't prosecute, it said they GENERALLY won't prosecute. Take that to the bank.
