New Consumer Agency Database Reveals Unsafe Products

dangerous products

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has launched a new online database that allows consumers to research the safety of everyday products. The site, SaferProducts.gov, publishes injury and death reports related to a variety of products.

The site is a result of the CPSC’s increased budget following many children’s product recalls, many of which were manufactured in China. In addition to publishing safety reports, the database allows people to post their own product safety complaints. Food, drugs, cosmetics, cars, and guns are excluded from the consumer reporting system.

Although manufacturers have 10 days to respond to a report before it is posted, critics worry the site could allow incorrect safety claims that may mislead the public. The CPSC argues that they screen every complaint made about a product to ensure the reports are relevant to the product's safety instead of its performance.
