Tenenbaum: US making strides in children’s product safety

July 17, 2012

In a column published in The Hill (7/17, Tenenbaum), US Consumer Product Safety Commission Chairwoman Inez Tenenbaum writes, “Today, thanks to the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA), the United States can proudly claim to be a global leader in children’s product safety. … Our nation now has the strongest crib safety standards in the world, along with mandatory standards for play yards, toddler beds, baby bath seats and baby walkers. … So long as I am chairwoman, CPSC will continue to move forward, do what is in the best interest of our nation’s children and uphold our mission to save lives and reduce injuries.”
