CNN is reporting that President Obama has selected Inez Tenenbaum to head the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).  Ms. Tenenbaum has recently served two terms as South Carolina’s superintendent of education. It appears that Ms. Tenenbaum’s top priority will be to protect children from being harmed by dangerous products.

CPSC’s mission statement, as stated on its website, is the following:

“The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of serious injury or death from thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. The CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical, or mechanical hazard or can injure children. The CPSC’s work to ensure the safety of consumer products – such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters, and household chemicals – contributed significantly to the 30 percent decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 30 years.”
