The U.S. 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 $800
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's work to ensure the safety of consumer products -
