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 $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's work to
ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette
lighters, and household chemicals - contributed significantly to the 30 percent decline in
the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years.
