buybuy BABY, now the only national retailer focused specifically on products for babies and toddlers, was once a leader – by acting on phthalates, vinyl, BPA, lead, cadmium, certain flame retardants, and triclosan before any laws required them to do so, and by crafting a "Restricted Substances List" of chemicals of concern for vendors. But in recent years, they’ve fallen behind. In the Retailer Report Card, they’ve received a D+ two years in a row.
Because they sell products especially for the nursery and for the care of babies and toddlers, buybuy BABY must resume their leadership path and give parents the peace of mind they deserve.
Members of the child care community - please sign this letter to Kaplan Early Learning and Excelligence (owner of Discount School Supply, Environments, Really Good Stuff and more), asking for their action to screen out harmful chemicals.
Toxic Arsenic is present in infant rice cereal six times the levels found in other infant cereals. Regulators, cereal makers, and retailers can all play important roles in helping parents have access to safe, nutritious foods for their little ones.
