A random laboratory test of children’s schools supplies for hazardous substances commissioned by the NGO Arnika revealed excessive amounts of toxic substances in three out of eleven tested products. Parents are warned in particular against two fake designer label pen holders Transformers-Optimus Prime and 21st Century which were found to contain several kinds of dangerous phthalates, exceeding permitted norms by up to 150 times. The NGO presented its findings at a press briefing in Prague on Tuesday urging parents to pay attention to the source and quality of the school accessories they acquire for their offspring.
