State Senator John Gleason (D-Flushing) is teaming up with the Michigan Network for Children's Environmental Health (MNCEH) to host a free testing event to determine the safety of children's toys and household items.

Research shows that children's products and everyday items continue to contain toxic chemicals, including lead, cadmium, endocrine disruptors, and toxic flame retardants. Then MNCEH encourages attendees to bring in their own children's products or any other items they would like tested for toxic chemicals.

Free testing is available Tuesday, March 20th from 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. and is being held at Swartz Creek High School in the cafeteria.
