Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product malfunctions cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is the federal government agency charged with protecting consumers and families from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of any of the thousands of types of consumer products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard – including baby products such as toys and cribs, furniture, power tools, cigarette lighters, and common household chemicals. The CPSC’s work has contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Clicking on the “Recalls” link on the CPSC.gov website allows consumers not only to learn recent product recalls, but also to submit their own complaints. Any manufacturer identified is given the opportunity to comment on the complaints, and completed reports about potentially dangerous consumer products, along with the manufacturers’ responses, are published on the CPSC website so consumers can become aware of the potential hazards related to use of the products.
