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.. ...

WASHINGTON, D.C. (Dec. 7) -- Imperial Toy Corporation, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, today announces the recall and repurchase of Blobo Plastic Bubb-A-Loons Item Nos. 028, 338, 339, 548 and 625, a plastic balloon toy which the Consumer Product Safety Commission has deemed to be a banned hazardous substance. Due to an error by the manufacturer in Taiwan, the product contains benzene. The Consumer Product Safety Commission believes that eating or inhaling benzene over an extended period of time may cause a type of blood disorder known as dyscrasias.. Blobo Plastic Bubb-A-Loons are distributed nationwide by Imperial Toy Corporation. The product is sold in individual metal tubes and in packages of tubes. More than 15 million such tubes have been shipped by Imperial since 1973. Imperial Toy Corporation has voluntarily agreed to cooperate with the Consumer Product Safety Commission and recall all of these products, offering a full refund to purchasers.. The Blobo Plastic ...

The popular Buckyballs and Buckycubes magnetic desk toys will be discontinued, its manufacturer said, blaming what it called baseless and relentless legal badgering from the Consumer Product Safety Commission.. Its time to bid a fond farewell to the worlds most popular adult desk toys, Maxfield and Oberton, the maker of Buckyballs, said on its website this week. Thats right: Were sad to say that Balls and Cubes have a one-way ticket to the Land-of-Awesome-Stuff-You-Should-Have-Bought-When-You-Had-the-Chance.. A limited number of the toys are still available, but no more will be made after they sell out, the company said.. In July, the Consumer Product Safety Commission sued Maxfield and Oberton in an attempt to get the company to stop selling the toys, saying they are hazardous to children. When children swallow the powerful magnets, they can pierce holes in the intestines, the commission said, and some children have required multiple surgeries and lengthy hospitalizations.

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.

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.

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 ...

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 ...

Our Portland injury lawyers know that riding ATVs can seem like a fun summer pastime. But unfortunately these recreational vehicles can be very dangerous. - August 10, 2013
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 ...

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.

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 ...
