#29 – Consumer Product Safety Commission

May 12, 1976

President Gerald R. Ford signs the Consumers Product Safety Commission Improvements Act of 1976 enabling the Commission to more effectively carry out its mandate to protect consumers from unreasonable risk of injury from the use of hazardous products. This Commission has since protected millions of Americans ranging from small infants to elderly adults by enforcing safety regulations on products sold in the United States and recalling products not meeting these requirements.
