For all products regulated by the CPSC, the Commission issues a Letter of Advice (LOA) when there is a violation of a mandatory standard. It advises the company of the violation and of the nature of the necessary corrective action (to correct future production (CFP); to stop sale and CFP; or to recall, stop sale, and CFP). This section lists the LOAs sent to importers and manufacturers beginning in Fiscal Year 2013, where the Commission received a response from the company confirming the violation and the Commission decided that the company voluntarily completed corrective action to remedy the hazard.
