    • Port Surveillance News: CPSC Investigators Find, Stop Nearly 650,000 Unsafe Products at the Start of Fiscal ... Page 1 of 11 NEWS from CPSC U.S. Consumer Product Safety CommissionOffice of Communications Washington, D.C.FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE CPSC Hotline: (800) 638-2772April 5, 2012 CPSC Media Contact: Carl Purvis, (301) 504-7805Release #12-142Port Surveillance News: CPSC Investigators Find, StopNearly 650,000 Unsafe Products at the Start of Fiscal Year2012WASHINGTON, D.C. - Investigators with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) preventedmore than half a million violative and hazardous imported products from reaching the hands of consumers in thefirst quarter of fiscal year 2012.Working with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents, CPSC port investigators successfully identifiedconsumer products that were in violation of U.S. safety rules or found to be unsafe. CPSC and CBP teamed up toscreen more than 2,900 imported shipments at ports of entry into the United States. As applicable, thesescreenings involved use and abuse testing or the use of an X-ray fluorescence (XRF) analyzer. Their effortsprevented more than 647,000 units of about 240 different noncomplying products from reaching consumers,between October 1, 2011 and December 31, 2011.Topping the list of products stopped were childrens products containing levels of lead exceeding the federallimits, toys and other articles with small parts that present a choking hazard for children younger than 3 years old,and toys and child care articles with banned phthalates.In addition to violative toys and other childrens products, items stopped at import included defective anddangerous hair dryers, lamps and holiday lights."We mean business when it comes to enforcing some of the toughest requirements for childrens products in theworld. If an imported product fails to comply with our safety rules, then we work to stop it from coming into theUnited States," said Chairman Inez Tenenbaum. "Safer products at the ports means safer products in yourhome."During fiscal year 2011, CPSC inspected more than 9,900 product shipments at the ports nationwide and stoppedalmost 4.5 million units of violative or hazardous consumer products from entering the stores and homes of U.S.consumers.CPSC has been screening products at ports since it began operating in 1973. In 2008, the agency intensified itsefforts with the creation of an import surveillance division. Harmful/Violative Products CPSC Stopped from Reaching Consumers *The following list includes only seizures which violate a federal mandatory standard. Additional products found to be defective or violative of a federal safety rule were also seized but are not listed below due to restrictions on reporting certain information in Section 6 of the CPSA and the delay in record updates.http://www.cpsc.gov/CPSCPUB/PREREL/prhtml12/12142.html 10/5/2012
