Children’s books burn, courtesy of the federal government.
It’s hard to believe, but true: under a law Congress passed last year aimed at regulating hazards in children’s products, the federal government has now advised that children’s books published before 1985 should not be considered safe and may in many cases be unlawful to sell or distribute.
Emphasis added by me.
Burning Books for Consumer Safety? Really?
