All juvenile products are required by federal law to abide by the rules of the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) in order for them to be sold to consumers. All of our cribs are manufactured to comply with the federal guidelines and standards set forth by the CPSC, as well as the ASTM (American Society of Testing Materials).
Our products are finished in non-toxic multi-step staining and painting process. The paint used for all of our products are formaldehyde and lead safe; the formaldehyde level for all of our furniture is undetectable. Paint is considered safe when it has toxic materials under 300 parts per million (ppm). In order for a company to claim low toxicity, it must have no more than 90 ppm. Franklin & Ben products come in at less than 10 ppm. We perform annual paint tests in order to maintain consistent quality, exceeding U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission regulations.
