The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency's jurisdiction.

CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard.
