CPSC does it again

The CPSC has banned another product – Buckyballs. While I agree these magnets can be very dangerous for children, the company has stated that they do not market these to children and that they have warnings on them. “Maxfield and Oberton founder and Chief Executive Craig Zucker said his company marketed the magnets to adults and teenagers.” There comes a time when the gov’t needs to realize that PARENTS are accountable for not putting harmful things in a place where children can reach them. Like a gun – you put it where a child cannot get it. These magnets – you don’t leave them lying about and you (duh) watch your kids. It’s time the gov’t demand PERSONAL accountability from adults. If your kid is standing up in a shopping cart and falls out and breaks an arm, it’s YOUR fault, not the grocery store’s. Same thing applies here.

The nerve…

OH MY WORD. It is GO time, people. I was just on my email and there, at the top, was this blurb: “Legal version of Kinder – ChocoTreasure.com – There’s 1 surprise egg legal in the USA. Tested safe for all ages!”

Oh no they did NOT just do that. The absolute nerve. Kinder eggs are CLEARLY labeled as not suitable for 0 to 3. I know that ChocoTreasure monitors our progress so I address this to them: You have gone too far. Ferrero Kinder Surprise Eggs are quality chocolate eggs with fun, unique toys. I’ve had your ChocoTreasure and you are NO Kinder. Game. On.

Contact information for ChocoTreasure. http://www.chocotreasure.com/contact-us/ Perhaps they can explain why their product is legal and Ferrero Kinder Eggs are not. (ChocoTreasure – made in China, distributed by a company in New Jersey.)

More money (and time) wasted

I am leaving for a trip to the USA tomorrow.  I find this article to be timely as I am planning to wear my Free The Egg shirt.  Can’t wait to hear if customs say anything.   If anyone knows either of these two men, please have them contact us.   http://www.komonews.com/news/offbeat/Seattle-men-busted-at-Canadian-border-with-illegal-candy-162685596.html#IDCThread
