Three senators testified about proposed legislation to modernize the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Other witnesses testified about enhancing the safety of toys, focusing on lead paint and the role of the Consumer Product Safety Commission in strengthening toy safety standards. Other topics included recent recalls of children’s toys, efforts to improve the safety of imported products, and the Consumer Product Safety Commission’s budget and statutory authority. The Commission recently recalled nearly 700,000 Chinese-made toys having excessive amounts of lead paint and some that had small loose parts such as magnets.

A representative of the delegation of China’s General Administration for Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine, who was in town for a meeting with the CPSC, was requested to testify but did not appear. close
