I am grateful to Attorney General Schneiderman and his staff for being strong partners with us in product safety, especially when it comes to protecting children. Just hours after receiving information about these jewelry making kits, CPSC staff opened an investigation into the safety of these products. Preventing children’s exposure to harmful metals and chemicals has long been one of my highest priorities. CPSC’s investigation will be thorough and swift, and we will certainly take all warranted steps to protect the public.
