Environmental advocates say action is needed at the state Capitol to protect children from harmful chemicals.

A new report shows toys are still being sold across Onondaga County that could lead to problems.

The study examined a dozen toys and clothing items bought at five different stores. It found chemicals like arsenic, mercury, and lead, which advocates say can harm a child's developing brain.

The groups behind the report say these items were bought at a wide range of stores, from low to high end.

"The good news is we bought products that we didn't find problems with. So clearly manufacturers can do it well, it's just a matter of making sure that they do it right every time," said Bobbi Chase Wilding, the Clean and Healthy New York deputy director.

Advocates are urging state leaders to pass the 'Child Safe Products Act,' which made it through the assembly last year.
