I could use your help today.
Today (Sunday – 2/20/22) I am drafting a letter to the CPSC (United States Consumer Product Safety Commission) about toxicants I have found in the children’s Paparazzi jewelry. I will be requesting that they initiate a comprehensive federally mandated recall of these products.
Since the Paparazzi corporate labeling states these items are for use by kids age 14 & up, but clearly the company encouraged that they be sold for use by very young children, I need more examples of links or screenshots (to websites or social media posts) with consultants advertising these items for sale with the intention that they are appropriate (& safe) to be used by young children.
The intention is NOT to blame particular consultants but to show that this is a “misunderstanding” across the board (a misunderstanding that these pieces are safe for use by young children and could be sold for use by young children) and that this level of “misunderstanding” could only have been generated by intentional corporate misrepresentation of the product (including misrepresentation inherent in the designs, styling and sizing of the products.)
REQUEST: Please send a link and screenshot of each relevant posts to me at TamaraRubin@mac.com. I have about 10 example already but I think plausable deniability from Paparazzi can be thrown out the window if we can assemble hundreds of examples. Please put “Paparazzi” in the subject line of any emails related to this that you send to me. I will publish my final letter to the CPSC on my website (LeadSafeMama.com / TamaraRubin.com) so that you all may use the language (and the linked information) to make separate CPSC complaints. If the CPSC is flooded with coherent, articulate, well written complaints regarding these products they will not be able to ignore the concern.
– Thank you.
Please also encourage consultants to take down these posts once you have recorded them, as I do not want them to be held personally responsible for selling a product for use by young children that is unsafe and likely illegal to sell to be used by children (now that the information that these products are unsafe (as they contain significant levels of heavy metals) is available to the public – via my website.)
