Ecover, a favorite among green consumers, has come under scrutiny after the Organic Consumer Association tested the brand’s products and found an alleged cancer-causing agent, known as 1,4-Dioxane, according to TreeHugger.  Ecover’s PR team responded to TreeHugger by saying that Dioxane shows up in many other consumer products and that the levels found in the test are well-below reporting thresholds.
