The Household Product Labeling Act has been introduced in the Senate

And it is about time!   HR 3057, the House companion bill, was introduced by Rep. Steve Israel (D-NY).

Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) has introduced The Household Product Labeling Act (S. 1697).  This Act would require household cleaning products to carry labels that list all of their ingredients. “Moms and dads have a right to know whether harmful chemicals are present in their kitchen cupboards,” Franken says.

The way it is now, products are required to list immediately hazardous ingredients, but there is no labeling requirement for ingredients that may cause harm over time. The bill would make information readily available to consumers.
