ABC World News Video Clip (click)

Believe it or not, the ABC World News called VAST for an interview last Thursday. Unfortunately, I wasn't available to take that call, otherwise it would have been Marlton on the news. In light of all the recent events that have led up to the CPSC investigation, I thought it would be pertinent to post this link, it runs 2 minutes.

One issue that remains a concern is that the crumb rubber used as infill has not been included in this study as a source of lead. So far, CPSC is only looking into the nylon fibers that were used in the old Astroturf product . It is urgent that they make sure they examine the whole product when checking for heavy metals, especially on product that is currently being installed.

Please write to the CPSC and let them know you would like the entire turf product examined, not just the fiber. Here is a link: http://www.cpsc.gov/cgibin/info.aspx
