Action Alert: Ask US Senators to Oppose Defunding of Product Safety Database for Public

March 02, 2011

From Kids in Danger:

The database,, that the CPSC has been working on for two and a half years is days away from launch. It will go live on Friday, March 11. CPSC has carefully crafted the site to both solicit important safety information from consumers and encourage accurate reporting. The database will provide consumers with a place to report injury and safety information and provide consumers, researchers and the CPSC with important information on injury trends and emerging hazards.

The House adopted an amendment to the Continuing Resolution they sent to the Senate that defunds the database — a move that wastes the money already spent rather than saving money and is designed to stop injury data from coming to light.

If you haven’t already contacted your US Senators, please do so and urge them to oppose any “Keep American Families in the Dark” efforts to stop the database.
