For millions of us, spending more time at home and more time cleaning our homes due to the COVID-19 crisis has heightened our risk of exposure to potentially dangerous chemicals found in everyday cleaning supplies.
The labels on some of these cleaning products don't mention that many of their chemical ingredients are toxic and are even associated with cancer, asthma, reproductive harms and other serious health issues. At a time when cleaning products are flying off store shelves, and millions of children are spending their days at home and are more exposed to those products, consumers should have the information they need to choose products that are right for their health and the health of their families.
We're calling on Congress to pass legislation requiring that any health risks associated with the chemicals in a cleaning product be disclosed on the product's label. Add your name today.
