Stop companies selling killer baby products

Congress

The last thing new parents want to worry about is whether their baby gear can actually HURT their baby. If it’s on the shelves at baby stores, families should be able to trust that it’s safe. But right now, they can’t -- a report just released by Congress shows kids’ company Fisher Price ignored years of safety warnings and kept selling a popular baby sleeper even after 50 infants died in them! Millions of sleepers were sold to unsuspecting parents before it was finally recalled in 2019, while Fisher Price made $200 million in profits.

It is unacceptable that a major company like Fisher Price cut corners by ignoring consumer and regulator warnings. According to NPR, the Consumer Product Safety Commission, which is supposed to oversee such products, allows companies to sell goods with little to no safety standards.

The government regulators that were supposed to protect us didn’t. And that has to change. Sign this petition asking Congress to give government watchdogs the power to protect kids!

Dear Congress: A recent report from the House of Representatives shows Fisher Price ignored years of safety warnings and kept selling a popular baby sleeper even after 50 infants died in them.

The government regulators that were supposed to protect us didn’t. And that has to change.

Congress should immediately give the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) the power to issue immediate mandatory recalls, and establish a public database of deaths and serious injuries related to consumer products so parents are equipped with the knowledge to protect their families.
