CPSC review of petroleum distillates-based products ingestion data needed -- CTFA.

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

CPSC REVIEW OF PETROLEUM DISTILLATE-BASED PRODUCTS INGESTION DATA urged by CTFA before the Consumer Product Safety Commission finalizes its proposed regulation. Under CPSC's advance notice of proposed rulemaking, all products containing at least 10% petroleum distillates with a viscosity of less than 100 Saybolt Universal Seconds at 100F would be required to use child-resistant packaging (CRP). In Sept. 1 comments to CPSC, the Cosmetic, Toiletry & Fragrance Association maintains that products containing petroleum distillates or other hydrocarbons "do not pose an aspiration hazard warranting child-resistant packaging."
