CPSC is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury
or death associated with the use of the thousands of consumer products under the
agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product
incidents cost the nation more than $900 billion annually. CPSC is committed to
protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical,
or mechanical hazard. CPSC’s work to ensure the safety of consumer products—such
as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals—contributed
to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products
over the past 30 years.
Under federal law, it is illegal to attempt to sell or resell
this or any other recalled product.
To report a dangerous product or a product-related
injury, go online to: SaferProducts.gov, call CPSC’s Hotline at (800) 638-2772 or
teletypewriter at (301) 595-7054 for the hearing and speech impaired. Consumers
