Environmentalists push for ingredient lists on household cleansers

Environmental advocates have asked a court to use an old law to force manufacturers to reveal what ingredients make up household staple cleaning items. The cleanser industry, which has recently pushed voluntary efforts to unveil product ingredients, claims that the lawsuit is not warranted and that fears about health risks are misinformed. Groups such as the American Lung Association and the Sierra Club want the public to know more, and want access to the information so they can determine of any of the chemicals are harmful to the homes and whether there are any product risks associated with them.
