  • From wikipedia: "Most of the chalk available in the US is certainly manufactured to be non-toxic and in some cases even hypo-allergenic. The liability is too great for the producer not to insure that it is safe to be around children. "

    FYI, anytime you are worried about things like this call the national poison control hotline. Their experts are better at this than we moms or googling things: 1800 222 1222. KEEP THIS NUMBER BY THE PHONE!!!
