Manufacturers of various products have the duty to produce products which assure healthy safety or any other safety to the consumers. To ensure that this safety is realized, a body in the United States was formed: known as The Consumer Product Safety Commission (US Consumer Product Safety Commission, 1996). It is an independent body of the government which aims at promoting the safety of all consumer products. They achieve this by addressing the risks of injury of the various products, they also coordinate recalls, develops uniform safety standards through a comprehensive research.
