[url="javascript:send();"]Send the link for this page to a friend![/url] 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 $800 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 decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with  consumer products over the past 30 years.</p>

 To report a dangerous product or a product-related injury, call CPSC's  hotline at (800) 638-2772 or CPSC's teletypewriter at (800) 638-8270,  or visit CPSC's web site at [url=""][/url].
