Testing for thee but not for me*

*[Title courtesy] Whilst twittering about this morning, what did I find but an NRDC spokesperson flogging their all organic onesie? Ever in the market for a great product -even tho my baby will be 22 next May- I bought one. For a buck. Yep, their donations form will accept one US dollar so ignore those suggested donation amounts; they have money so I figure they can absorb the cost since all of us will be going out of business come February 10th. I think everyone should stock up now!

You recall the NRDC don’t you? They’re one of the parties who lobbied for this great CPSIA law. Considering they wrote and lobbied for the law, wouldn’t you think they’d be up on it? Turns out, they aren’t. Nope. Their spokesperson twittered:

The testing requirements only apply to manufacturers. We’re not a manufacturer.

and

The NRDC attorney who worjed [sic] on our suit about #CPSIA tells me the testing requirements only apply to manufacturers.

Ohmigosh! Can you believe it? The NRDC is selling non-CPSIA compliant products! Even they don’t understand that as the private labeler, they are the manufacturer! Boy, I can hardly wait till I get mine, I’ll bet those snaps won’t pass an XRF lead test. Jolly Jolly! I’ll bet people will be lining up on Tuesday to report them to the CPSC. So what say all of you? Don’t you have a hankering for a lead laden $1 onesie courtesy of our friends at the NRDC?

    “With your generous gift of $25 or more, you will also receive a free organic cotton onesie — a great gift for family and friends!”

    They will take any donation you will send, but you will not be sent a onsie if you have not donated $25 or more.

    Hi Audra, just thought I’d let you know that I got my NRDC onesie in the mail today. Curiouswork got hers today too. I can’t say I’m impressed with the quality either. I will be sending it to Jennifer Taggert for testing.
