It’s flu season – and you might be doing a little extra cleaning to try and fight off germs.
But do you know what exactly you’re cleaning with? Probably not.
As you may know, earlier this year I introduced a bill that would require big chemical companies to come clean about the ingredients in the household products you use every day – products they sell you to clean your kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms.
For more on the Household Product Labeling Act (H.R.3057), watch my latest video blog.
I also have some good news. Since I introduced this legislation over the summer, groups concerned about cancer, consumer protection, and environmental health have endorsed the bill, as has the 2.1 million-member Service Employees International Union. And, we now have Senate companion legislation introduced by Senator Al Franken.
