Toxic flame retardants have been discovered in children’s car seats, a new study has revealed.Researchers from Indiana University discovered the toxic chemicals in 15 of 18 new car seats tested, sparking concerns for children’s health.
Dr Marta Venier, who led the study, said: “New replacement flame retardants, often marketed as safer alternatives, are lurking in children’s products without rigorous safety testing and may pose risks for children’s health. The abundance of emerging flame retardant chemicals in children’s car seats and the key role these products play as potential sources of chemical exposure is a cause for concern.”
