Thousands of children’s toys have been recalled recently because of lead paint. But lead is not the only worry. Many other chemicals used in children’s products also pose health risks.

This Guide helps parents learn about synthetic chemicals commonly used in children's products (and how to avoid them), and provides a list of safer products ranging from baby bottles, utensils, pacifiers, teethers and more.
