European Chemicals Agency – ECHA listar regelbundet konsumentprodukter som visat sig innehålla verkligt skadliga ämnen i doser långt över lagliga gränsvärden. Det rör sig bland annat om hormonstörande, cancerogena, miljöfarliga och reproduktionsstörande substanser som räknas som SVHC:s (substances of very high concern).

När jag gick in och bläddrade bland aktuella förbud som lagts upp på deras Facebooksida kände jag igen en hel del prylar som jag sett i svenska butiker eller märken som jag vet säljs i Sverige. Framförallt handlade det om leksaker, men även smycken, lädervaror och rostfritt. Kolla in bilderna nedan och försäkra dig om att ingenting av detta finns i ditt liv.

ECHA samarbetar med myndigheter i samtliga EUs medlemsländer samt i Lichtenstein, Norge och på Island.
