The Consumer Product Safety Commission (Commission or CPSC) has received a petition requesting standards restricting cadmium in children’s products, especially toy metal jewelry.
Specifically, petitioners request that the Commission adopt regulations declaring that any toy metal jewelry containing
more than trace amounts of cadmium by weight which could be ingested by children be declared a banned hazardous substance. If the Commission finds that it lacks sufficient information to determine the appropriate level of cadmium in products, petitioners request that the Commission, as an interim measure, adopt the maximum levels established for lead.
