LA Unified School District Files Complaint Against Artificial Turf Installer

Posted on Feb 16, 2010 | by ge2info

Follow the link below to an article regarding the LAUSD filing a complaint against an artificial turf company because they were not told that the crumb rubber, with known carcinogens, would come in contact with the children. In earlier blogs I have talked about the 65 known carcinogens in the crumb rubber infill…and how our children are ingesting, inhaling and absorbing these chemicals into their bodies. It seems that the School District was not informed…and I find that most schools, municipalities and government agencies are not informed. The artificial turf companies do not willing give information regarding the biological and environmental hazards of their product…and the consumers “think” they are doing the right thing by reducing water consumption and increasing playable sport surfaces for the public.
