While we always strive to have a personal voice here on the blog, there will be certain situations where we will need to share the official company position regarding certain issues. As such, I am presenting you with Graco’s official response to a recent report released by FOE:
Today a report was released by the Friends of the Earth organization that there is a concern about possible health effects of halogenated fire retardants found in juvenile products. Although FOE has not yet supplied us with their specific findings about our products, we take reports such as this very seriously.
All products manufactured by Graco Children’s Products meet or exceed all relevant regulations and standards including those put forth by the Consumer Products Safety Commission and the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association.
Even though industry experts deem these materials to be safe for continued use, Graco will be reviewing the report closely and is committed to evaluating alternative materials to use in our products.
At Graco, safety is always a top priority and nothing is more important than the well-being of the children who use our products. This is our commitment – not only as manufacturers but as parents as well.
If you have any questions about this, feel free to reach out to Consumer Services at 1-800-345-4109.
