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. It works to ensure the safety of consumer products – such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals, and claims it has contributed significantly to the 30% decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years. The site,, offers information (in English and Spanish) that could help protect consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard, or can injure children.

The home page provides links to several topics, including: Recalls and Product Safety News; Neighborhood Safety Network Signup; Report an Unsafe Product (Report an incident with a product that caused an injury; Medical Professionals and Fire/Police Investigators: file MECAP, incident reports); Voluntary Standards/Research Reports; Sign Up for E-mail Announcements; and view and order CPSC Publications on a wide variety of consumer safety issues.
