Sen. Rebekah Warren to host free holiday toy testing event
Sen. Rebekah Warren, D-Ann Arbor, and experts from the Ecology Center and the Michigan League of Conservation Voters will be hosting a holiday toxic toy testing event on Monday to help consumers make the safest decision possible when purchasing gifts for their children.
Many toys sold this holiday season will contain toxic chemicals such as lead, arsenic or cadmium. Chemical testing equipment will be on hand at this free event to ensure each attendee the security that their gifts will not cause harm from these toxic chemicals, according to a news release.
The event will take place from 5:30-7 p.m. Monday at Malletts Creek Ann Arbor Library Branch, 3090 E. Eisenhower Parkway, Ann Arbor.
