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. 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.
