The U. S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has gone live with a database mandated by Congress, as part of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. Consumers are encouraged to visit www.SaferProducts.gov to submit reports of harm or risks of harm, and to search for safety information on products they own or may be considering buying.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death from thousands of types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction. The CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard. The CPSC's work to ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals - contributed significantly to the decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years.
To report a dangerous product or a product-related injury, call CPSC's Hotline at (800) 638-2772 or CPSC's teletypewriter at (301) 595-7054. Click here to join a CPSC e-mail subscription list. Consumers can obtain recall and general safety information by logging on to CPSC's Web site at www.cpsc.gov.
