Scientific tests reveal iPhone contains hazardous chemicals and materials, says GreenpeaceOct 18, 2007
Amsterdam, 15 October 2007 – Apple’s iPhone contains hazardous chemicals and materials, according to the results of scientific tests commissioned by Greenpeace. The insight into the components of the iPhone is presented in the Greenpeace report, ‘Missed call: the iPhone’s hazardous chemicals’. Apple launched the iPhone into the US market in June 2007. The discovery of hazardous chemicals suggests that Apple is failing to make early progress, even in entirely new product lines, towards achieving its commitment to phase-out all uses of brominated compounds and PVC by the end of 2008.
