Socks are essential for workouts, breaking in a new pair of shoes, and keeping warm on cold nights. They’re a daily necessity we all use and buy for ourselves and our families. A cozy pair of socks doesn’t really seem like it could be a source of toxic chemical exposure to you and your loved ones. However, recent research done by the Center for Environmental Health (CEH) found over 100 brands of socks that tested over California’s safe limit for exposure to the reproductive and developmental toxicant known as bisphenol A or BPA. Some of the socks that were in violation of the state limit, without a warning to consumers, included socks made specifically for babies and children.
