Urge the CPSC to take urgent action and get asbestos-laced crayons off store shelves.
Ann Marie Buerkle, Acting Chairwoman of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission:
A new study from PennPIRG Education Fund found asbestos in common Playskool brand crayons. The CPSC has the power to get these products off store shelves and put in place safety measures to ensure more crayons aren't laced with asbestos. We urge you to take these steps to protect our children, families and communities now.
