CEH testing found one bounce house contained more than 70 times the federal limit for lead in children’s products under the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. Independent testing commissioned by CEH also showed that lead from bounce houses can expose children to the toxic chemical at levels that violate California law.
It’s the PVC to blame for the lead content in these bounce houses. This “ poison plastic ” has prompted the California Attorney General Jerry Brown to file a lawsuit against companies that supply bounce houses.
I’m horrified by these findings. My daughter just celebrated her 6th birthday with a bounce house party, and we’ve been to at least 7 other bounce house events in the last year. We parents can’t police all of the places our children visit looking for invisible health hazards. This problem needs to be solvedand soon.
When was the last time your child was in a bounce house? It was last year at school for my daughter.
