Prevent Child Injuries: CPSC Launches Consumer-Friendly Product Warnings Database

Parents do everything in their power to keep their children safe. However, even the most cautious parent can only do so much when a dangerous or defective product is unknowingly used by their child.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) recently “soft-launched” a nationwide database that collects consumer concerns about product safety. The database will be fully operational and available to the public in March 2011.

The new website gives consumers the chance to alert manufacturers and the government to dangerous products, as well as to share warnings with other consumers, by submitting reports of injuries or illnesses caused by consumer products. Reports can be made by filling out the online form available on the website.

The CPSC reviews each report and decides whether or not to take further action, such as issuing a recall of the product. The agency also sends a copy of each report to the product’s manufacturer, who may also choose to recall the product.

According to the CPSC, the goals of the database include giving consumers a simple, quick way to inform the CPSC of problems; allowing consumers to learn about potential or actual problems from one another; and gathering information about dangerous or defective consumer products in a single, easily searchable location that the CPSC, manufacturers, and consumers can all use to discover and solve problems more quickly.
