U.S. Congresswoman Debbie Dingell (MI-12) has introduced the Children’s Product Warning Label Act of 2018 aiming to protect children from cosmetic products with asbestos. The introduction came after a children’s cosmetic retailer recalled 17 of their products from the market in December 2017.

The proposed legislation requires all cosmetics marketed to children to contain a warning label that the product may contain asbestos unless the manufacturer is able to prove otherwise to the FDA, by attesting in writing to the Secretary that the source is asbestos-free using the transmission microscopy method.

The legislation was introduced on February 7, 2018.
