ALERT...CPSIA threat

If you haven't yet heard of the "Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act" brace yourself.

This new legislation (which is scheduled to start being enforced in Feb. 09) will require extensive testing for all products made for use by children age 12 and under. This would mean THOUSANDS of dollars in testing for EACH product made. People who decide to skip the testing face huge fines and possible jail time. Bye bye small businesses & designers. Hello more economic problems.

Check out (BF Beads) Mama's Magic beautifully written blog post about this issue.
You will find links to discussions, online petitions, and a plethora of information.
