Target revamps chemical use policy, asks suppliers to list ingredients | Fox News

The company said it is seeking to remove perfluorinated chemicals and potentially carcinogenic flame retardants from its textile products by 2022, having already moved to abolish more than a 1,000 chemicals from some of its products in 2015.

The chemical strategy will include all Target-owned and national brand products and operations, Chief Sustainability Officer Jennifer Silberman said.

Target's announcement comes six months after Wal-Mart Stores Inc said it was pushing suppliers to remove or restrict the use of eight hazardous chemicals from some of the products it sells.
