Delaware Code Chapter 25, Title 6 § 2509
Children’s Toy Safety Act
On July 16, 2008, the Governor of Delaware signed into law a restriction on the use of toxic substances in children’s toys. The law prohibits the knowing sale, offer for sale, or transfer of a toy containing lead, or a toy with a coating containing lead, in excess of federal limits established by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The prohibition also applies to toys containing any other toxic substances deemed by the CPSC to be toxic or harmful to the health of children less than 12 years of age. The ban also applies to toys that are “unsafe,” which is any toy meeting at least one of the following criteria: (1) the toy does not comply with federal standards; (2) the toy is the subject of a recall; or (3) a state or federal agency has issued an imminent hazard warning for the toy.
