Exposures to the toxic chemical phthalates, are still unacceptably high. There is consensus among authoritative agencies that they are priority chemicals of high concern. Designating four of these phthalates as such, is the next step towards regulating a chemical that has already been identified as of concern by both the European Chemicals Agency and the U.S EPA.
