Green group WWF on Thursday released further blood testing data showing the presence of many hazardous chemicals at low levels. The group called the findings shocking. "How much more evidence is needed before industry and European politicians accept that these hazardous chemicals cannot be adequately controlled".

Despite WWF's "alarmist rhetoric", its report actually confirms that there is no consumer health risk from the three main commercially used retardants, it claimed.
