Probably not a huge impact, since we are apparently talking about less than 1% of the stuff that is produced in this country.  I do know that it sounds like a horrid idea to me.  This stuff is termed “hazardous” for a reason; it needs to be tightly regulated and policed or companies will cut corners to save a dime and people will get sickened as a result.
