Schumer warns parents of toxic Halloween makeup

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – As we get closer to Halloween, Senator Chuck Schumer is calling for tougher regulation on the makeup your kids use for their costumes, saying it can sometimes contain potentially dangerous chemicals.

Senator Schumer wants to see these products tested more regularly by the FDA, to ensure they don’t include chemicals that could impact a child’s brain, if used in large doses.

Currently the FDA does not test these types of makeup and face paint regularly, and Schumer says these products often test positive for these chemicals.
