Tell Household Cleaner Manufacturers to Come Clean on Chemical Ingredients

From EarthJustice.org

Procter & Gamble, Colgate-Palmolive, Church and Dwight, and Reckitt-Benckiser are refusing to follow a law requiring them to disclose the chemical ingredients in their products and the health risks they pose. They should be required to tell the public what chemicals are in their products.

INFORMATION

Every day it seems we learn more about the risks posed by chemical ingredients in the products we use to wash our dishes, launder our clothes, and clean our homes.

From the lung irritants found in some surface cleaners, to the hormone-disrupting qualities of the alkylphenol ethoxylates in some detergents, disinfectants, stain removers, and floor cleaners, the news can be troubling.

Which is why it is so important to require cleaning product manufacturers to tell the public what chemicals are in their products. Consumers should have the information required under an important right-to-know law: a full list of ingredients and disclosure of their impacts to health. Armed with this information, people can make safe choices about what products to bring into their homes.

But some household cleaner manufacturers are fighting hard to keep this information out of consumers' hands.

Procter & Gamble, Colgate-Palmolive, Church and Dwight, and Reckitt-Benckiser are refusing to follow a law requiring them to disclose the chemical ingredients in their products and the health risks they pose.

We need your help to get them to come clean.
