The Disney Store Informative - Cancer-causing agent in clothing sold by The Disney Store

Review by 4Gel on 2009-12-29
Clothing made in China offers vulgar profits to the merchants selling it, but poses a specific hazard to the wearer, especially true in the case of children. The fabric contains 500% the U. S.A. legal limit of formaldehyde, a cancer-causing agent.

How many mothers do you think are aware of the fact that children's clothing made in China must be washed five to seven times before it is placed against the child's skin? This is necessary to remove all traces of the carcinogen formaldehyde.

I fail to see how the Disney brand, a brand targeted specifically to children, continues to perpetrate a crime against children in the name of large profits. Before buying any clothing from the Disney Store, be well advised to check -- as I did recently -- the country of origin of the garment. If it is made in China, do not buy it.

China is a country with little regard for human life and no regulation of hazardous materials. Buyer beware!

You know, formaldehyde has been used on fabric for decades, and many of us have been just fine.

Just out of curiosity, do you have any specific evidence suggesting that the fabric used in the clothes in the Disney store have a level 500% higher than allowed to be imported into the US?

Just out of curiousity: what's the difference between "vulgar" profits and non-vulgar profits?
Posted by goduke on 2009-12-29:
Vulgar profits are what other people make. Non-vulgar profits are what I make.

I'm guessing there's one of those stupid chain emails going around again. You know, the ones that incite panic about minor crap.

I think you are right, Yt. If this was true I think it would be on the news channels.
