Some owners say the cost of testing for toxic lead and phthalates will shut their businesses. The law goes into effect Feb. 10.

Barring a reprieve, regulations set to take effect next month could force thousands of clothing retailers and thrift stores to throw away trunkloads of children's clothing.

it may explain why all our teenagers act retarded. It was the lead in the clothes we put on them.

i feel bad for all the businesses that will throw out clothes, talk about a waste of money and clothes in this economy. imagine all the kids that could be clothed with these clothes ..this law seems kind of ridiculous imo, anyone else feel this way?

Excuse me, but were the clothes we wore in the sixties and seventies any better or worse? Why the big uproar; can someone tell me that? Are these clothes suddenly drenched in lead?

The same thing goes with toys. Were our Matchbox cars, Barbie dolls and Lincoln Logs in the sixties completely lead free? Have we all turned into troglodytes?
