New Link To European Commission Safety News
I've added a link to the safety news page of Europa's web site. In paging through the site, I think it's interesting to note that the perspectives of the Europeans and Americans concerning consumer safety are quite different. The EU apparently assesses the inherent toxicity of a substance and based on an accumulation of evidence determine that its potential to cause harm is enough to remove it from the market. In contrast, American regulatory authorities seem to wait for conclusive scientific evidence of toxic exposure before acting.
