Toxic chemicals in your baby shampoo

Johnson's Baby Shampoo is pictured on display at a supermarket in Hong Kong on March 16, 2009.

This final note today.

Yes, it's true. Nothing is safe. Nothing at all -- now that we know Johnson & Johnson baby shampoo is bad for you.

The company said today it's going to start removing two toxic chemicals from its baby products. One's a preservative that can release formaldehyde; the other's something called Dioxane.

No more tears indeed.
