Toxic Flame Retardants

Learn about flame retardants, chemicals that are added to everyday products such as highchairs, car seats, nursing pads, upholstered furniture, carpet pads, nap mats, strollers, electronics (including toys) and many more common household products. Many flame retardants are hazardous to our health. Over time flame retardants escape from the products they are used in and get into the air and dust around us. 

Baker signs bill to protect children, families and firefighters from toxic flame retardants

“If we learned one thing from 2020, it’s that good public health is the foundation of a strong society. The passage of this bill will contribute to the well being of our most vulnerable as well as all Massachusetts residents."
