Consumer Product Safety Commission Blasts Toy Industry

The acting director of the Consumer Product Safety Commission lashed out Monday at the toy industry for a lack of safety controls that led to a string of highly publicized recalls, and she warned that the industry has the obligation to regulate itself. Nancy Nord said she would not tolerate this industry not complying with our regulations. She spoke to the annual American International Toy Fair expo and also said the federal agency, under attack for not acting quickly enough to eliminate hazardous products from store shelves, is adding staff and working more closely with customs officials to stop suspect imports.
