H&M and New York & Co. agreed to abide by new restrictions on lead in purses last week when the retailers settled a lawsuit brought by a California consumer watchdog group.
The Oakland-based Center for Environmental Health sued the companies, along with dozens of other co-defendants, last June. The advocacy group alleged the retailers violated California’s Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986 by selling handbags, wallets and other accessories containing unsafe levels of the lead.
