Jeff Ashley, associate professor, cautions on use of flame retardants: The Philadelphia Inquirer

Jeff Ashley, associate professor of chemistry, says the use of flame retardants in such products as car seats for young children may pose some risk of harmful chemical exposure for youngsters, according to a May 30 Philadelphia Inquirer story. Citing research done at Philadelphia University and Duke University, Ashley said some car seats companies are using the flame retardants at fairly high concentrations, which may “represent a significant exposure to these chemicals.”
