The problem seems to be not the standards, but the regulation. No one thinks lead, cadmium or other dangerous chemicals are acceptable in children’s products (or other consumer products) but the reality is they enter the marketplace anyway.

Not everything can be standardized and regulated but the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission exists and, as evidenced by recent problems with toys and jewelry, it needs to pay closer attention.
