i received this from weir:

In response to lead tainted toys coming over from China, the CPSIA act was passed August 14, 2008 to ensure toy safety. The aim of the act is to eliminate lead and pthalates (DEHP, DBP, and BBP) from children's goods. Goods made before February 10, 2009, are not required to be certified, but must be under 600 ppm. of lead. Within a year, all goods made must be under 100 ppm lead.

Natural fiber goods are inherently free of lead and the Consumer Product Safety Commission recognizes this. In a January 9, 2009 bulletin, the CSC proposes to exempt natural fiber goods from the certification process. Click here to see this bulletin in full. Also included is the Federal Register/Vol. 74, No. 10 in full, which further details these exceptions.

The only risk of lead in these products comes from the dyeing process. Therefore, above and beyond the CPSIA act, we are testing all of our current inventory for lead. We will have completed this process by Feb. 10, 2009.
WE WILL TEST ALL OUR FABRICS, WOOL, FELTS, AND ROVING TO MAKE SURE THEY LEAD FREE.

In addition, we are contacting all our suppliers for any and all further certification they can provide us. While source information is proprietary, please see the list we will be compiling below with the results from various suppliers as they come in.

It is important to us that you know our products are lead and pthalate free and are safe for your children. It is part of our commitment to green policy not to carry products that harm the environment, either for our children or us. Thank you.
