On Friday, PBS’ The Newshour caught up with our old friend Nancy Nord, the toy industry’s good friend heading up your Consumer Product Safety Commission.
And she was in full corporate hack mode, spinning like a top:
Toys are one of safest products in the American marketplace. And the toys on the shelves this year, right now, have gone through more inspections and more testing than in any years past. So, parents, I think, can shop with confidence this year.
Which sounded particularly ridiculous, since the news piece began with a New Hampshire activist who had found lead, asbestos, cadmium and mercury in toys she purchased, yet could not even get a response to her findings from Nord’s agency.
