Public Database for Safety Complaints Goes Live

According to the Associated Press, the website, overseen by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, went live as scheduled. Manufactures objected to the website and a GOP Congress attempted to withhold money for the project until manufacturer’s concerns were addressed. The database allows people to file reports of injury or potential harm about household products, baby gear and more. In the coming weeks people will be able to search for safety complaints about specific items they might have in their homes or want to purchase.
