Government Launches Safety Complaint Database

Law Technology News reports that the federal government has launched SaferProducts.gov, as required under the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008.  The website allows consumers to file reports about hazardous products, and then allows other consumers to search and review these filings.

According to the press release,

Following procedures set up by the law, CPSC will review all online Reports and have five business days to transmit qualifying Reports to the manufacturer, where practicable. Manufacturers then have 10 business days during which they may respond and provide comments and/or claims. At the end of the 10 day period, if all requirements are met, the Report and the manufacturer’s comments will be posted on SaferProducts.gov

Thanks to Lisa Smith-Butler for the info.
