CPSC enforces new rules for baby product manufacturers after recalls
Posted on January 15th, 2010 by Zane Cagle
After several recent baby product recalls, the Consumer Product Safety Commission has imposed new regulations on manufacturers.
In a unanimous vote, the CPSC decided to require all manufacturers to keep track of product owners by providing consumers with postage-paid registration forms. The goal is to alert consumers about recalls faster, especially recalls which could be life threatening to infants and toddlers.
Just in 2009, millions of consumers were affected by three different recalls involving cribs, strollers and car seats. The CPSC is hopefully that the new regulations will help parents keep their children safe from defective products that pose direct dangers to their safety.
