Toxic Nap Mats Lead Watchdog Group To Sue Major Retailers.

An environmental watchdog group from Oakland is suing major manufacturers and suppliers of children's products it says contain toxic flame retardant. The Center for Environmental Health says many children's products, like nap mats and mattresses, contain a toxic chemical linked to cancer, among other health risks. State Senator Mark Leno says state officials are working to address the issue by improving fire and furniture safety guidelines. Alex Kekauoha reports from Oakland.
