Consumer Product Safety Commission gets even more serious

Consumer Product Safety Commission gets even more serious

Shares

Bob2 Hey, I've worked with Bob Adler at Consumers Union/Consumer Reports, and now he's a commissioner there. He's the real deal.

This helps protect the public from abusive businesses.

Adler, who worked at the CPSC earlier in his career and who served six
terms on the board of Consumers Union,  publisher of Consumer Reports,
most recently worked as a professor at the University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill’s business school where he taught ethics, negotiation,
business law and consumer protection. “I’m delighted to rejoin an
agency whose mission I consider to be one of the most important in all
of government. I very much look forward to working with Chairman
Tenenbaum and the other commissioners in promoting product safety for
American consumers,” he said.

I mean, someone somewhere might try to sell a rhinestone on Craigslist:

Or someone might try to sell a children's book printed before 1985, which will be illegal.
Or an old bicycle or four-wheeler that a 17 year old might ride, and try to lick the tire valves.

This applies to anyone selling such items. Sounds like Craigslist needs another page like the Fair Housing page.
