Any art product that will be used by children under the age of 18 must be
tested for toxicity and labeled according to the Consumer Product Safety
Commission. It is a stringent test, and I would make the assumption that
construction paper, being an arts material, must meet the same requirements.
It should be safe for children and animals, but to be on the safe side, you may
wish to ask the manufacutere if he/she is required to test and label according
to the Arts labeling standard.
