NY to ban urinal cakes

School Toilets Could Get Stinky
# Legislation Would Ban Use Of Odor-Control Product

Aug 25, 2004 11:58 am US/Eastern
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) New York state is a step closer to banning the use of urinal wafers in bathrooms at schools. The odor-control products have been around for decades, but
recently they've been blamed for triggering asthma attacks as well as being a suspected carcinogen.

The state Legislature has passed a measure that would ban the use of the wafers in private and public school bathrooms. If the legislation is signed by Governor Pataki, the law could take effect as soon as November.

Several other government agencies have banned urinal cakes, including Erie County, the state prison system and the cities of New York and San Francisco.

Supporters of the ban say there are safer products on the market that can contain odors.

"Urinal cakes"? "Urinal wafers"? I still wonder why they try to make the things sound like food.

I always kinda wondered why my asthma was always a little worse in school.

It was the damn urinal cakes. And my math teacher Ms. Gatto

Why the hell don't they focus on pushing for and enforcing tighter regulations so that manufacturers have to create safer cakes? Hell, they could be called Safer Wafers.
