Product Safety at Girl Scouts of the USA
Girl Scouts of the USA is dedicated to the health and safety of girls and their families and our merchandise products are designed and manufactured to meet or exceed all applicable government product safety standards. Girls and their families can rest assured that product safety is of the utmost concern to us. GSUSA maintains relationships with manufacturers who provide certification that our merchandise meets the guidelines of the US Consumer Products Safety Commission. We require all our vendors to conduct product testing and compliance to meet industry safety standards, whether we are distributing them directly, or through Girl Scout council shops, or through third-part retailers. We are continuously enhancing our compliance programs and safety testing requirements based on the Consumer Products Safety Improvement Act 2008.
For California Residents:
Proposition 65 requires businesses to provide warnings to Californians about significant exposures to chemicals that cause cancer, birth defects or other reproductive harm. These chemicals can be in the products that Californians purchase, in their homes or workplaces, or that are released into the environment. By requiring that this information be provided, Proposition 65 enables Californians to make informed decisions about their exposures to these chemicals.
Only products that are indicated by the warning below contain such chemicals.
