Oriental Trading Company strives to provide safe products, and we take that responsibility very seriously. That's why we want to give you an update on the ongoing implementation of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (the "CPSIA").
Among other things, the CPSIA establishes standards for phthalate content in children's toys and substrate lead content in children's products. Phthalates are chemical compounds sometimes used in certain plastics. The term substrate generally refers to the components of a product other than paint or other surface coating. The substrate lead and phthalate standards became effective February 10, 2009.
Even before the CPSIA was signed into law, we've been taking steps aimed at strengthening and improving our product safety standards with the goal of meeting or exceeding standards established by the CPSIA.
In addition to the CPSIA, there are numerous other federal product safety laws and regulations which Oriental Trading Company observes. Occasionally, individual states adopt regulations that are different from applicable federal requirements. In order to accommodate such unique situations, Oriental Trading Company may adjust its product offerings or make products unavailable to customers who reside in such states.
Oriental Trading Company strives to lead the industry on product safety. We are confident that our products are safe.
