Statement of Commissioner Mary T. Boyle on Vote to Issue a Final Rule on Safety Standard for Magnets

Your substances


The Commission voted unanimously to approve a new federal safety standard for small, powerful magnets to protect children from the devastating injuries, and even death, that can occur as a result of ingesting these products.  I am pleased that my fellow Commissioners all joined in approving this important rule, and I extend my deep appreciation to the CPSC staff who worked tirelessly not only to bring this rulemaking to fruition but for their dedication to this issue for well over a decade. As a result, lives will be saved and devastating injuries will be avoided.
