Bills Give Labs Job Of Finding Risks In Kids Products - WSJ.com
Congress is giving the job of ensuring that childrens products are safe to many of the same private laboratories that already work for importers, manufacturers and retailers.

A bill approved yesterday by the Senate — as well as a similar bill already passed by the House — aims to plug holes in the governments consumer safety net that have been letting hazardous products aimed at children slip through. Dozens of toys were recalled by manufacturers in 2007 because of dangers including choking risks and contamination involving lead, asbestos and other toxic chemicals.
