Maternal immunization. (1/566)

Maternal immunization can enhance passive immunity of infants to pathogens that cause life-threatening illnesses. In most instances, immunization during pregnancy will provide important protection for the woman as well as for her offspring. The tetanus toxoid and influenza vaccines are examples of vaccines that provide a double benefit. Other vaccines under evaluation include those for respiratory syncytial virus, pneumococci, group B streptococci, and Haemophilus influenzae type b. Although most IgG antibody crosses the placenta in the third trimester, the process is time-dependent, dictating that immunization should be accomplished ideally at least 6 weeks prior to delivery. IgG1 antibodies are transferred preferentially. Maternal immunization has not interfered with active immunization of the infant. Inactivated vaccines administered in the third trimester of pregnancy pose no known risk to the woman or to her fetus.  (+info)

Potential advantages of DNA immunization for influenza epidemic and pandemic planning. (2/566)

Immunization with purified DNA is a powerful technique for inducing immune responses. The concept of DNA immunization involves insertion of the gene encoding the antigen of choice into a bacterial plasmid and injection of the plasmid into the host where the antigen is expressed and where it induces humoral and cellular immunity. The most effective routes and methods for DNA immunization are bombardment with particles coated with DNA ("gene gun" technique), followed by the intramuscular and intradermal routes. DNA immunization technology has the potential to induce immunity to all antigens that can be completely encoded in DNA, which therefore include all protein, but not carbohydrate, antigens. DNA immunization results in presentation of antigens to the host's immune system in a natural form, like that achieved with live-attenuated vaccines. The DNA immunization strategy has the potential to rapidly provide a new vaccine in the face of an emerging influenza pandemic.  (+info)

Safety of long-term therapy with ciprofloxacin: data analysis of controlled clinical trials and review. (3/566)

We reviewed the literature and the manufacturer's U.S. clinical data pool for safety data on long-term administration of ciprofloxacin (Bayer, West Haven, CT). Only controlled clinical trials including patients treated for >30 days were selected. We identified 636 patients by literature search and 413 patients in the Bayer U.S. database who fulfilled our search criteria; the average treatment duration for these patients was 130 and 80 days, respectively. Main indications for long-term therapy were osteomyelitis, skin and soft-tissue infection, prophylaxis for urinary tract infection, mycobacterial infections, and inflammatory bowel disease. Adverse events, premature discontinuation of therapy, and deaths occurred at a similar frequency in both treatment arms. Most adverse events occurred early during therapy with little increase in frequency over time. As with short-term therapy, gastrointestinal events were more frequent than central nervous system or skin reactions, but pseudomembranous colitis was not observed. No previously unknown adverse events were noted. We conclude that ciprofloxacin is tolerated as well as other antibiotics when extended courses of therapy are required.  (+info)

Fluoroquinolone toxicity profiles: a review focusing on newer agents. (4/566)

For 2 decades fluoroquinolones have been found to be generally well-tolerated and safe. Adverse events may be inherent to the class or influenced by structural modifications. The commonest adverse events are gastrointestinal tract (GI) and central nervous system (CNS) reactions; nephrotoxicity and tendinitis are infrequent, but agents differ greatly in phototoxic potential. Fluoroquinolones are safe in elderly, human immunodeficiency virus-infected, and neutropenic patients, but because of possible effects on articular cartilage, they are not currently recommended for children or pregnant women. Four new agents have recently been licensed. Levofloxacin causes few GI or CNS adverse events and is minimally phototoxic. Sparfloxacin infrequently causes GI or CNS effects but is associated with relatively high rates of phototoxicity and prolongation of the electrocardiographic QTc interval (Q-T interval, corrected for heart rate). Grepafloxacin causes relatively high rates of GI effects, taste perversion, and QTc interval prolongation, but it is minimally phototoxic. Trovafloxacin is associated with a moderate rate of GI effects and a relatively high incidence of dizziness but has low phototoxic potential.  (+info)

Expanded safety and immunogenicity of a bivalent, oral, attenuated cholera vaccine, CVD 103-HgR plus CVD 111, in United States military personnel stationed in Panama. (5/566)

To provide optimum protection against classical and El Tor biotypes of Vibrio cholerae O1, a single-dose, oral cholera vaccine was developed by combining two live, attenuated vaccine strains, CVD 103-HgR (classical, Inaba) and CVD 111 (El Tor, Ogawa). The vaccines were formulated in a double-chamber sachet; one chamber contained lyophilized bacteria, and the other contained buffer. A total of 170 partially-immune American soldiers stationed in Panama received one of the following five formulations: (a) CVD 103-HgR at 10(8) CFU plus CVD 111 at 10(7) CFU, (b) CVD 103-HgR at 10(8) CFU plus CVD 111 at 10(6) CFU, (c) CVD 103-HgR alone at 10(8) CFU, (d) CVD 111 alone at 10(7) CFU, or (e) inactivated Escherichia coli placebo. Among those who received CVD 111 at the high or low dose either alone or in combination with CVD 103-HgR, 8 of 103 had diarrhea, defined as three or more liquid stools. None of the 32 volunteers who received CVD 103-HgR alone or the 35 placebo recipients had diarrhea. CVD 111 was detected in the stools of 46% of the 103 volunteers who received it. About 65% of all persons who received CVD 103-HgR either alone or in combination had a fourfold rise in Inaba vibriocidal titers. The postvaccination geometric mean titers were comparable among groups, ranging from 450 to 550. Ogawa vibriocidal titers were about twice as high in persons who received CVD 111 as in those who received CVD 103-HgR alone (600 versus 300). The addition of CVD 111 improved the overall seroconversion rate and doubled the serum Ogawa vibriocidal titers, suggesting that the combination of an El Tor and a classical cholera strain is desirable. While CVD 111 was previously found to be well tolerated in semiimmune Peruvians, the adverse effects observed in this study indicate that this strain requires further attenuation before it can be safely used in nonimmune populations.  (+info)

Filter ventilation and nicotine content of tobacco in cigarettes from Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. (6/566)

OBJECTIVES: The purpose was to determine filter ventilation and the nicotine content of tobacco and their contribution to machine-smoked yields of cigarettes from the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. METHODS: Ninety-two brands of cigarettes (32 American, 23 Canadian, and 37 British brands) were purchased at retail outlets in State College, Pennsylvania, United States, Toronto, Canada, and London, United Kingdom. A FIDUS FDT filter ventilation tester measured the percentage air-dilution from filter vents. High-pressure, liquid chromatography was used to measure the nicotine content of tobacco. Regression techniques were used to examine the contributions of tobacco nicotine content and filter ventilation to machine-smoked yields of tar, nicotine, and carbon monoxide (CO). RESULTS: Ninety-four per cent of the American brands, 91% of the Canadian brands, and 79% of British brands were ventilated. The total nicotine content of tobacco and percent nicotine (by weight of tobacco) averaged 10.2 mg (standard error of the mean (SEM) 0.25, range: 7.2 to 13.4) and 1.5% (SEM 0.03, range 1.2 to 2) in the United States, 13.5 mg (SEM 0.49, range: 8.0 to 18.3) and 1.8% (SEM 0.06, range: 1.0 to 2.4) in Canada, 12.5 mg (SEM 0.33, range: 9 to 17.5) and 1.7% (SEM 0.04, range: 1.3 to 2.4) in the United Kingdom. Multiple regression analyses showed that ventilation was by far the largest factor influencing machine-smoked yields of tar, nicotine, and CO. CONCLUSION: Filter ventilation appears to be the predominant method for reducing machine-smoked yields of tar, nicotine, and CO in three countries. However, some brands contain about twice as much nicotine (total content or percent nicotine) as do others, indicating that tobacco types or blends and tobacco castings can be used to manipulate nicotine content and nicotine delivery of cigarettes.  (+info)

Changes across 3 years in self-reported awareness of product warning messages in a Hispanic community. (7/566)

This study investigated the self-reported awareness of product warning messages among independent random samples of Hispanics in San Francisco surveyed from 1989 through 1992. Messages tested were primarily related to cigarette smoking and the consumption of alcoholic beverages. In general, respondents reported low levels of awareness of product warning messages with the exception of those messages dealing with the consumption of alcohol or cigarettes during pregnancy. Nevertheless, there were increases in awareness across years for the alcohol-related warning messages and for one of the cigarette messages, indicating that continued exposure increases awareness of the message. A notable proportion of the respondents reported being aware of a bogus message implying the presence of socially desirable responses in self-reports of message awareness. Gender, education, age and acculturation level of the respondents also showed effects on reported awareness of specific messages. Continued exposure to product warning messages seems useful in producing health-enhancing behaviors among Hispanics.  (+info)

Protection of chickens against very virulent infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) and Marek's disease virus (MDV) with a recombinant MDV expressing IBDV VP2. (8/566)

To develop a herpes virus vaccine that can induce immunity for an extended period, a recombinant Marek's disease (MD) virus (MDV) CVI-988 strain expressing infectious bursal disease virus (IBDV) host-protective antigen VP2 at the US2 site (rMDV) was developed under the control of an SV40 early promoter. Chickens vaccinated with the rMDV showed no clinical signs and no mortality and 55% of the chickens were considered protected histopathologically after challenge with very virulent IBDV (vvIBDV), whereas all of the chickens vaccinated with the conventional IBDV vaccine showed no clinical signs and were protected. Chickens vaccinated with the CVI-988 or chickens in the challenge control showed severe clinical signs and high mortality (70-75%) and none of them were protected. Also, the rMDV conferred full protection to chickens against vvMDV just as the CVI-988 strain did, whereas 90% of the challenge control chickens died of MD. Antibody levels against IBDV and MDV following the vaccination increased continuously for at least 10 weeks. No histopathological lesions in the rMDV-vaccinated chickens and no contact transmission of the rMDV to their penmates were confirmed. These results demonstrate that an effective and safe recombinant herpesvirus-based IBD vaccine could be constructed by expressing the VP2 antigen at the US2 site of the CVI-988 vaccine strain.  (+info)

Nomination, Consumer Product Safety Commission: hearing before the Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation, United States Senate, Ninety-fifth Congress, second session, on nomination of Samuel D. Zagoria, to be a member, Consumer Product Safety Commission, October 5, 1978 ...
IN 1972 Congress created a new federal regulatory agency, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and empowered it to deal with the safety of virtually every consumer product in use. Previously, household products subject to safety regulation had been the exception rather than the rule. Specific laws-the first dating from 1953 but most having been enacted during the consumerist boom of the late 1960s-had given various federal agencies regulatory power over flammable fabrics, refrigerator doors, household poisons, and toys. The new law, the Consumer Product Safety Act, applies to every type of consumer product not covered by other legislation-which is to say, everything except automobiles, cosmetics, drugs, food, and cigarettes. ...
In general, yes. CPSIA defines childrens products as those products intended primarily for use by children 12 and under. Accordingly, these products would be subject to the lead limit for paint and surface coatings at 16 CFR part 1303 (and the 90 ppm lead paint limit effective August 14, 2009) as well as the new lead limits for childrens products containing lead (600 ppm lead limit effective February 10, 2009, and 300 ppm lead limit effective August 14, 2009). If the childrens products use printing inks or materials which actually become a part of the substrate, such as the pigment in a plastic article, or those materials which are actually bonded to the substrate, such as by electroplating or ceramic glazing, they would be excluded from the lead paint limit. However, these products are still considered to be lead containing products irrespective of whether such products are excluded from the lead paint limit and are subject to the lead limits for childrens products containing lead. For lead ...
U.S. Consumer Protection Officials Wait Months to Notify Public of Dangerous, Defective Products, Public Citizen Study Finds Despite a law requiring manufacturers to provide the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) with immediate notification of dangerous products, the agency typically delays nearly seven months after learning of dangerous, defective products before telling the public. A new Public Citizen study, Hazardous Waits: CPSC Lets Crucial Time Pass Before Warning Public About Dangerous Products, reveals that companies fined for tardy reporting took an average of 993 days - 2.7 years - between learning of a safety defect in their products and notifying the CPSC. Perhaps as shocking, the CPSC then took an average of 209 additional days before disclosing the information to the public - even though each case concerned a product defect so dangerous that the item was recalled.. ...

What I have been able to learn from my own research is that BPA helps make clear plastics shatterproof, which seems somewhat desirable to me. I also learned that colored plastics dont usually contain it, but that CDs and DVDs (found in most of our homes) do contain this material. These plasticizing materials are essentially inert (not chemically active) until they come in contact with other materials, and then the only way to determine if they have become hazardous is through testing. This is why we have the EPA, FDA and other regulatory bodies. We at home would not likely have the laboratories required to test for a wide variety of interactions. Phosphoric acid and citric acid and other ingredients found in commonly consumed beverages could possibly interact with BPA, especially given enough time, but water (inert) or physiological saline are not likely to interact. Some of this info I gleaned through conversations with an organic chemist (my dad), others from a website devoted to Bisphenol A. ...

With Mattel recalling 18 million toys and Cadbury on the receiving end of a conviction for making and distributing unsafe chocolate, many manufacturers will be looking again at what they can do in the event of a product safety problem.. What should a company do when faced with a product safety crisis? How can it handle the practical, legal and PR implications of a damaging product recall?. A companys first act must come long before a product is even made, never mind found to be faulty. A crisis such as Mattels does not creep up on a firm, it bursts in an explosion of publicity and logistical headaches. A company that has not previously put a plan in place has little chance of managing the situation effectively.. There must be an incident management team set up to handle product safety incidents. Product safety touches many areas of a business, so there should be team members from senior management and from the technical, legal, marketing and sales departments.. An incident management plan ...
On average across the years from 2011 to 2013, 1.8 million injuries per year related to team or individual sport activities occurred to children and adolescents age 20 years and younger. Data reported is from consumer product-related injuries occurring in the United States from a statistically valid sample of emergency departments collected by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission, National Electronic Injury Surveillance System. Data shown for sports injuries are not included in the overall total for musculoskeletal conditions among children and adolescents, on the assumption it duplicates numbers found in the emergency department database based on ICD-9-CM codes and used in the trauma injuries section.. Males report injuries at twice the number as females, with the highest number of injuries occurring in the junior high (11 to 13 years) and high school (14 to 17 years) ages. (Reference Table 7.7.1 PDF CSV). ...
OBJECTIVE. Our objective for this study was to describe the epidemiology of lawn mower-related injuries among children in the United States.. METHODS. A retrospective analysis was conducted of data from children who were 20 years and younger in the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System of the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission for 1990-2004.. RESULTS. There were an estimated 140700 lawn mower-related injuries to children who were 20 years and younger and treated in hospital emergency departments in the United States during the 15-year period of 1990-2004. This yielded an average of 9400 injuries annually, or 11.1 injuries per 100000 US children per year. The mean age was 10.7 (SD: 6.0) years, and 78% were boys. The leading type of lawn mower-related injury sustained by patients was a laceration (41.2%), followed by soft tissue injury (21.4%), burn (15.5%), and fracture (10.3%). The most common body region injured was the hand/finger (34.6%), followed by lower extremity ...
A sweeping childrens safety bill was envisioned to protect kids from dangers ranging from ingesting toxic chemicals to drowning as a result of defective pool drains. [...] after the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act was signed by former President George W. Bush in August, mass confusion and misinformation reigned in the lead-up to its effective date last Tuesday. Thrift and consignment store operators nationwide feared they would have to shut down because they wouldnt be able to afford to test childrens products - including clothes - for lead and phthalates, a chemical used to soften plastic. How the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which is supposed to enforce the law, disseminated information about the act left a lot of people scratching their heads. Sara Cleveland, communications manager for Northwest Assistance Ministries in Houston, said her agency has removed all items for children 12 and under from its three resale shops. Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., chairman of the Committee on
12/18/2012 (press release: ncconsumer) // Raleigh, North Carolina , USA // Brian Reitter. NCCC has formally requested that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) investigate the dangers of the JD2.2 Flat Bench, as well as other Apex-branded personal training products that could pose personal injury risks to users. NCCC has received a number of complaints from consumers who allege that the legs of the Apex JD2.2 Flat Bench give out, breaking at a leg weld suddenly and without warning during use causing the bench to collapse underneath them. Upon inspection, they report that the leg welds are holding together only a thin, lightweight mebtal that has completely sheered away. Many of the complainants report that their own weight combined with the weight they are lifting is nowhere near the 300 pound advertised weight limit for the bench. Its obviously a serious consumer safety hazard, says Matthew Oliver, NCCC Executive Director. As a 160 pound man, I would expect to be able to lift ...

Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act definition - The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act ( CPSIA ) of 2008 is a United States law signed on August 14, 2008 by President George W. Bush. The legislative bill was known as HR 4040, sponsored by Congressman Bobby Rush (D-Ill.). On December 19, 2007, the U.S. House approved the bill 407-0. On
Beginning in July 2000, the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in collaboration with the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), expanded the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS) to collect data on all types and causes of injuries treated in a representative sample of United States hospitals with emergency departments (ED). This system is called the NEISS-All Injury Program (NEISS-AIP). The NEISS-AIP is designed to provide national incidence estimates of all types and external causes of nonfatal injuries and poisonings treated in United States hospital EDs. Data on injury-related visits are being obtained from a national sample of 66 out of 100 NEISS hospitals that were selected as a stratified probability sample of hospitals in the United States and its territories with a minimum of 6 beds and a 24-hour ED. The sample includes separate strata for very large, large, medium, and small ...

Soccer becomes more and more popular every year. The more a sport becomes popular, the more frequent we see injuries from it. Soccer is no exception. The US Consumer Product Safety Commissions National Electronic Injury Surveillance System looked at these injuries. They looked at emergency room data from 1990 to 2003. During this period there were 1.6 million children seen in ERs with soccer injuries. Most of them (59%) were boys. The current rate is about one ER visit for every 500 male participants per year. That rate has been steady since 2000. Thus if a child plays for 10 years, there is about a 1 in 50 chance that he/she will go to the ER during that period of time. Girls show a rising rate. While the number of injuries in boys has stayed about the same, girls injuries continue to rise. That is likely due to a doubling of girls playing soccer since 1990. The most common injury is to the wrist and hand. It accounts for about 20% of the injuries. Ankle injuries make up 18%. Knee injuries ...
The ban on phthalates is the result of a law passed in 2008, the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. The law permanently bans BBP, DBP and DEHP from toys and child care products, and temporarily bans DIDP, DINP and DnOP until a scientific board (the Chronic Hazard Advisory Panel) determines for the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) whether or not they are safe. A few months before the bill passed, major retailers such as Wal-Mart, Target, and Babies R Us promised to remove or severely restrict childrens products containing phthalates by the end of 2008. But children and adults in the U.S. are STILL EXPOSED to phthalates in many other products, including shampoo, soap, lotions, and food packaging.. ...

2. Will Baby Boxes really make an impact?. The Back to Sleep campaign was launched in 1994 by the National Institute of Health. And even though we know that back to sleep is best and reduces the instances of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) only 49% of mothers always put their babies on their back to sleep. This recent story underscores the continued need for more education: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/too-parents-still-put-babies-at-risk-of-sids/. In our opinion, this program is not all about the box, it is about engaging parents and caregivers and talking about safe sleep. Education is how we really create change.. 3. Baby Boxes arent endorsed by the Consumer Product and Safety Commission, are they?. We understand that baby boxes are not fully endorsed by the Consumer Product Safety Commission and that a safety approved crib should be the first choice for a parent when practicing safe sleep. But a traditional crib simply is not a viable option for many families in our community. There was ...

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) and the United States Fire Administration (USFA) are urging consumers to play it safe as winter weather blankets the United States.. According to USFA, home fires spike in winter months. Cooking and home heating are the leading causes of residential building fires during the winter. The risk of fires also increases with the use of supplemental heating, such as space heaters.. CPSC estimates that home heating was associated with an average of 33,300 fires and 180 fire deaths per year from 2005 to 2007.. Carbon monoxide (CO) is also a serious threat in the winter months. Any fuel-burning appliances in the home, including furnaces and fireplaces, are a potential CO source. Carbon monoxide is called the invisible killer, because it is an odorless, colorless and poisonous gas.. There has been an increasing trend in unintentional, non-fire CO deaths associated with consumer products since 1999. CPSC staff estimates there were 184 CO poisoning deaths ...
A large recall of about 220,000 Ceramic Piggy and Lion Banks, has been implemented by the Oriental Trading Company, Inc. of Omaha, Nebraska, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced.. The CPSC is advising consumers to stop using these banks immediately and notes that it is illegal to resell or to attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.. The yellow surface paint on the banks contains excessive levels of lead, which is prohibited under federal law. To date, no incidents or injuries have been reported; however, it is imported to note that reactions to lead exposure and lead poisoning often take time to manifest.. Exposure to lead in children and unborn children can cause brain and nervous system damage, behavioral and learning problems, slowed growth, hearing problems, headaches, mental and physical retardation, and behavioral and other health problems. Lead is also known to cause cancer and reproductive harm and, in adults, can damage the nervous system. Of ...
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is reminding consumers of the importance of wearing helmets for sports and recreation to reduce the risk of head injury, including traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). Helmets absorb much of the impact energy from a fall or collision, and can protect the skull and brain from more severe injury.. Bike helmets are required to meet CPSCs federal safety standard. They must have a label stating that they meet the standard. Consumers can usually find this label on the liner inside of the helmet, on the exterior surface, or attached to the chin strap. Information on bike helmets, and helmets for other activities, can be found at CPSCs «Which Helmet for Which Activity» webpage.. Findings in a new report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) show just how critical helmets are to preventing injuries and deaths. The report found that from 2009 through 2018: ...
July 18, 2015. Food for Thought from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission Staff. Playgrounds should allow children to develop physical and social skills, and part of that development includes testing the limits of their skills. Innovation is important for this, as children need new challenges. Staff believes it is important that new, innovative playground components should still follow the safety recommendations and standards that both CPSC staff and ASTM have worked to refine over the past several decades. CPSC Staff May 20, 2013. CPSC staff believes that focusing on the hazards posed by the equipments design or movement would address the issues of nontraditional equipment more appropriately than exempting that equipment from all but the most basic requirements. CPSC Staff May 10, 2012. CPSC staff believes that rather than exempting nontraditional equipment from most aspects of the standard, a more appropriate method of dealing with any issues of nontraditional equipment would be to ...
Advice on avoiding injuries. Tis the season to give and receive toys. But gifts that are not age-appropriate may have hidden dangers. To help keep kids safe, Prevent Blindness, a national nonprofit organization, is providing safety tips and shopping advice.. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety commission, toys are a leading cause of injury. More than 254,000 toy-related injuries were treated in U.S. emergency rooms in 2015, the most recent year of data available.. Prevent Blindness offers a host of recommendations, including:. Make sure a toy is right for a childs age and ability. Avoid toys with shooting or flying parts, or with sharp points or dangerous edges. Make sure a toy is labeled to meet safety standards from ASTM International. Provide eye protection with sports equipment. Do not give young children toys with small parts or long strings. Do not buy toys that contain small magnets, which can be dangerous if swallowed. Buy only nontoxic art supplies. Read the full list at ...
Using a trampoline can be dangerous. Organized clubs and gyms usually have large safety end-decks with foam pads at each end, and spotters are placed alongside the trampoline to try to break the fall of any athlete who loses control and falls. In 1999, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission estimated there were 100,000 hospital emergency room visits for trampoline injuries.[21]. Due to the much larger numbers involved and lesser safety standards, the majority of injuries occur on privately owned home trampolines or in commercial trampoline facilities rather than organized gyms.[22]. CBC Televisions Marketplace discovered that the trampoline park industry is unregulated in Canada, with different standards for padding and foam pit depth, self-inspections and repairs, and not being required to report injuries. It was also noted that there were generally too few staff to enforce rules, and that promotional advertisements often showed participants engaging in somersaults even though this was ...
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) can be a useful tool that subrogation professionals can employ to effectively gather information to build a successful products liability claim. In cases where a loss is caused by a defective product, a simple FOIA request to the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) can produce a veritable treasure trove of documents of reported incidents involving a particular product. The CPSC tracks all complaints it receives about safety issues involving products sold in the United States. The complaints can come from a variety of sources, including local, state, or federal government agencies, as well as from consumers who contact the CPSCs hotline. Depending on the number of incidents and the magnitude of the risk to consumers, the CPSC may launch an in-depth investigation (IDI) of a particular product. Subrogation professionals investigating a potential products liability claim can utilize the CPSCs website and FOIA requests to assist in determining ...
Fire safety product maker Kidde is recalling nearly 500,000 smoke alarms that could be faulty.. The company issued a recall for about 452,000 alarms in the U.S. and 40,000 in Canada after discovering that a yellow cap potentially left on during production could cover a sensor and prevent it from detecting smoke.. Kidde said it had identified one report of a yellow cap on an alarm before it was installed in the buyers home. The company said it was not aware of any incidents or injuries connected to the defect.. The recall affects the Kidde dual-sensor smoke alarm models PI2010 and PI9010. If the date code printed on the back of the alarm falls between Sept. 10, 2016, and Oct. 13, 2017, the model is affected.. Consumers should remove the alarm from the wall/ceiling and visually inspect it through the opening on the side of the alarm for the presence of a yellow cap, Kidde warned in an alert through the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.. But the company warned consumers not to take apart ...
The House of Representatives approved the Child Nicotine Poisoning Prevention Act (S. 142), on Monday, January 11. The bill, passed by the Senate in December, would direct the Consumer Product Safety Commission to require child-resistant packaging on the liquid nicotine containers used for e-cigarettes and other vaping devices. The legislation now moves to the Presidents desk to be signed in to law.. Many organizations worked on this bill, led by the American Academy of Pediatrics. Consumers Union, Consumer Federation of America, and Kids in Danger issued the following joint statement:. This legislation will go far to protect young children from the dangers of liquid nicotine. Just one teaspoon can be fatal to a child. And this safety threat only continues to grow as e-cigarettes and other vaping devices grow in popularity. We applaud Congresswoman Brooks and Congresswoman Esty for sponsoring the bill, Congresswoman Schakowsky for her leadership, and all the bills proponents for their ...

10/12/17 - Last month, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC or Commission) voted to approve a petition seeking to ban products in four categories that contain non-polymeric, additive organohalogen flame retardants (OFRs).. The product categories are childrens products, upholstered furniture, mattresses/mattress pads, and casings surrounding electronics. The Commission will now initiate a rulemaking regarding OFRs and will establish a Chronic Hazard Advisory Panel (CHAP) to study OFRs. The Commission also voted to publish guidance about the toxicity and hazards of OFRs.. Before voting on the petition, the CPSC held a hearing on the petition and heard from 31 witnesses. Most of the witnesses supported the petition and opposed a CPSC staff briefing, which recommended that the Commission deny the petition.. Less than a week after the hearing, the CPSC met again to vote on whether to grant the petition. The Commission voted 3-2 to grant the petition and initiate the CHAP on OFRs to aid the ...
The National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) creates codes and standards related to fire and electrical safety. Generally, compliance with NFPA standards is voluntary.. However, compliance with the NFPA codes and standards can reatly improve the quality and safety of your products. From August 1, 2017 to August 22, 2017 there were 6 products recalled by the United States Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), due to fire hazards, burn hazards, or not meeting federal flammability standards..

NFPA fire and flammability Standards are created for products relating to electrical equipment, electrical safety and maintenance, as well as fire, fireworks, explosives, and other fire related activities and equipment. It is estimated that in 2011, the cost of fires in the U.S. totaled $329 billion. This total includes economic losses, expenses from ...
As concerned administrators, coaches and parents, we want to remind you all of the seriousness of goal safety. As we have visited several fields throughout our association in recent months, we have seen an alarming number of unsecured or poorly secured soccer goals.. We urge you all to have a soccer goal safety strategy in place, with good reason. From 1998-2008, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has received reports of at least eight deaths and an estimated 2,000 emergency room visits by children under 16 years of age that were related to soccer goal tip-overs and structural failures. According to Anchored for Safety, a nonprofit initiative for promoting soccer goal safety awareness, five soccer goal-related deaths have occurred in the past two years.. According to US Youth Soccer, unanchored or improperly secured soccer goals account for seven of the top twenty insurance claims, nationally, in youth soccer. Three were fatalities and four resulted in injury to the players. The ...

Portable heaters and burning candles that are left unattended, especially around children and pets, can create a fire hazard. In addition, gasoline- or diesel-powered generators and appliances can produce deadly levels of carbon monoxide and should never be operated inside the home or garage.. Also, be sure to place smoke alarms on every level of your home, outside of sleeping areas and inside each bedroom. Guard against carbon monoxide (CO) poisonings as well by installing carbon monoxide alarms in your home. Make sure that your batteries in all alarms are fresh and working.. Using extension cords to bring electricity into a location where electric service was shut off may create a fire hazard. If this situation is detected, the Local Codes Enforcement Officer will be notified.. * This includes information from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission ...
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recommends that consumers purchase and install carbon monoxide detectors with labels showing they meet the requirements of the new Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. (UL) voluntary standard (UL 2034). The UL standard, published in April 1992, requires detectors to sound an alarm when exposure to carbon monoxide reaches potentially hazardous levels over a period of time. Detectors that meet the requirements of UL 2034 provide a greater safety margin than previously-manufactured detectors.. About 200 people die each year from carbon monoxide poisoning associated with home fuel-burning heating equipment. Carbon monoxide is a colorless, odorless gas that is produced when any fuel is incompletely burned. Symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning are similar to flu-like illnesses and include dizziness, fatigue, headaches, nausea, and irregular breathing. Carbon monoxide can leak from faulty furnaces or fuel-fired heaters or can be trapped inside by a blocked ...
