BBC News - Most Indian plastic toys are 'toxic'

"The Centre for Science and Environment (CSE) studied a sample of Indian toys and found that all of them contained high levels of phthalates.

Phthalates are chemicals used to soften plastic and the group says India has no regulations to control their use.

The use of these chemicals in Europe and the US is strictly regulated. "

"Most of the toys were imported from China, Taiwan and many were produced in India. "

Outsourcing production isn't just unfair. It's dangerous.
