Public hearing held on toxic toy ban

ALBANY, N.Y. – Albany County Executive Dan McCoy will hear from residents over a ban on the sale of toxic toys in the county.

A measure passed by county legislatures last month bans the sale of the toys containing any of seven toxic chemicals, those chemicals aren’t listed on the toy’s warning labels.

Some of those toys were found on shelves in the county, prompting the legislature to vote on the issue. It passed with an overwhelming majority, but it has not yet been signed by County Executive McCoy.

A public hearing will be held at 6 p.m. on Tuesday in the Cahill room at the Albany County Office Building.
