U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission

The U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (USCPSC) is an independent federal regulatory agency that was created in 1972 by Congress in the Consumer Product Safety Act. In that law, Congress directed the Commission to "protect the public against unreasonable risks of injuries and deaths associated with consumer products." We have jurisdiction over about 15,000 types of consumer products, from automatic-drip coffee makers to toys to lawn mowers. This includes consumer (1.4g) fireworks. CPSC works to reduce the risk of injuries and deaths from consumer products by:

  • Developing voluntary standards with industry

  • Issuing and enforcing mandatory standards; banning consumer products if no feasible standard would adequately protect the public

  • Obtaining the recall of products or arranging for their repair

  • Conducting research on potential product hazards

  • Informing and educating consumers through the media, state and local governments, private organizations, and by responding to consumer inquiries

To report an unsafe consumer product or a product-related inquiry, and to obtain recall information, call the CPSC toll-free Hotline at (800) 638-2772 or
(800) 638-8270 for the hearing and speech impaired.

You can also obtain additional information at the CPSC home site listed below. There are links for fire departments, medical personnel, and consumers to file complaints or incidents under the Report an Unsafe Product heading on the main page.
