U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) chairman Inez Tenenbaum and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Deputy Commissioner David Aguilar announced that more than 2 million units of dangerous or violative toys and children's products were seized in 2012 and were prevented from reaching the hands of children. CPSC investigators and CBP inspectors are working arm-in-arm at ports across the United States to keep families safe during this holiday toy shopping season.
Over the past four years, CPSC and CBP have stopped more than 8.5 million units of about 2,400 different toys and children's products due to safety hazards.
