Letter to Senate Commerce Committee Re: Government Oversight of Child Product Safety

We believe it is time for Congress to increase its role in overseeing the persistent failure of children’s product manufacturers to report to the CPSC those products that pose a danger to young children, in violation of federal requirements. We therefore encourage you to hold oversight hearings on this critical issue to ensure that manufacturers are complying with the law.
