State regulators are taking steps to reduce certain toxins found in children's products and home improvement supplies.

The list is part of a new law that took effect in October and includes a known carcinogen found in children's sleeping mats.

A toxin in spray insulation that can trigger asthma was also named, as was an ingredient in paint thinners that has been linked to as many as 13 deaths.
