Description

The article details problems and concerns with the Consumer Product Safety Commission's ability to keep unsafe infant products off the market. Each year many deaths and injuries occur as the result of unsafe products. But unlike other agencies the CPSC does not require mandatory testing of products before they are released to the market. The author also argues that the agency is underfunded.
