in a complex and technical world in which we expect the products
we purchase and use to be designed and manufactured in such a manner
that they are safe for our use. We also expect that the sellers
and manufacturers of products will give us reasonable warnings of
dangerous characteristics of their products.
not all designers, manufacturers and sellers of products live up
to these expectations and the requirements of our laws with regard
to their products.
are three ways a product may be found to be dangerous:
design flaw or defect exists because the product was designed
with a defect that makes the entire line dangerous even if the
manufacturing and assembly was flawless.
manufacturing defect exists when a safely designed product
becomes dangerous because the manufacturer failed to make the
product in accordance with the plans and specifications.
warnings or instructions are not complete and do not give
clear directions for use of the product.
Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the
public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from more
than 15,000 types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction.
Deaths, injuries and property damage from consumer product incidents
cost the nation more than $700 billion annually. The CPSC is committed
to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire,
electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard or can injure children.
The CPSC works to ensure the safety of consumer products - such
as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals
- and has contributed significantly to the 30 percent decline in
the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products
over the past 30 years.
