U.S. Retailers Urged to Diminish Use of Toxic Chemicals


Washington, D.C.-based Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families is urging retailers to cut down on the use of toxic chemicals following a new study aiming to protect families from dangerous chemicals. The group published a new report card evaluating the nation’s largest retailers’ chemical safety programs.

Most companies received less-than-glowing scores, with an average grade of D+ across the board. Three brands—Amazon, Costco and Albertsons—received failing scores while Cincinnati-based Kroger, the country’s largest traditional supermarket, received a D-. While Wal-Mart and Target received B grades, CVS Health and Best Buy were the only other brands out of the top 11 retailers to receive grades higher than D+, says the Cincinnati Business Courier.
