Brown Reaches Settlement to Reduce Children's Lead Exposure in Artificial Turf

Office of the Attorney General

OAKLAND - Continuing his fight to reduce children's exposure to lead, Attorney General Edmund G. Brown Jr. today announced a settlement that requires two of the largest makers and installers of artificial turf to eliminate nearly all lead from their products.

"Because schools, public parks and daycare centers use artificial turf, it's critical that we minimize the amount of lead it contains," Brown said. "Today's agreement will get the lead out of artificial turf in playgrounds and ball fields around the state."
