The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is on the job and working to protect consumers from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction.
In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19), CPSC is using an approach that relies on employees teleworking to the maximum extent possible in conjunction with staff whose onsite presence is necessary to perform their duties. Our goal is to provide for the safety of our staff while continuing our work for the safety of consumers.
Companies are reminded of their statutory obligation to report under Section 15(b) of the Consumer Product Safety Act. Consumers are encouraged to continue reporting incidents or unsafe products at SaferProducts.gov or the CPSC Hotline 1.800.638.2772.
CPSC Home Safety Education Materials
CPSC has created COVID-19 safety education materials to help keep you and your family safe both inside and outside your home.
CPSC Recall Remedy Notice Due to COVID-19
Due to the extraordinary circumstances surrounding COVID-19, some of the remedies identified in recall press releases may not be available at this time. Consumers should check with recalling firms for further details.
It is important to remember that CPSC and recalling firms urge consumers not to use recalled products.

Due to COVID-19, some public Commission briefings and activities may be changed or suspended. If you have questions about the status of an event at the U.S. CPSC, please contact the Office of the Secretary at 301-504-7479 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
FOIA Procedures in Response to COVID-19
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Office staff are on extended telework. As a result, we temporarily do not have access to U.S. mail, and will be processing all FOIA requests electronically during this time. FOIA requests and appeals submitted via US mail or courier, and any FOIA records requiring physical delivery will be delayed. If you are a requester who has not already signed up for Public Access Link (PAL) in order to submit electronic FOIA requests and appeals, and to receive FOIA responses electronically, please do so today by visiting https://foiapal.cpsc.gov/App/Home.aspx. In the alternative, please submit new FOIA requests and appeals to the email@example.com email address. If you are a manufacturer who has not already signed up to receive Section 6 notifications via the Collaboration Portal, please visit https://www.cpsc.gov/Guidance-for-Firms-Responding-to-a-FOIA-Request-via-the-Electronic-Manufacturer-Notification for registration information.
