Toxic Hot Seat (2013)
Documentary, Family · 25 November 2013
Check under the cushions of your couch at home. Odds are high you will find the TB117 tag, and you have been sitting in toxins for years. Most Americans assume that harmful chemicals are regulated and that laws require chemical safety testing before use. This assumption is wrong. Toxic Hot Seat investigates why a class of carcinogenic chemicals that were outlawed in childrens' pajamas in the seventies persists in products today. The blame rests on a unique California fire safety standard, which is currently being challenged in California State legislature. This film dramatically portrays the stories of a disparate yet determined group whose outcome in 2012 will have consequences for the entire nation.
