Magnet Safety Poster

Title

Magnet Safety Poster

Description

This safety poster was issued by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, under the Neighborhood Safety Network project. It warns parents about the dangers of magnets to children, showing an x-ray and doctor with scalpel.

Congress created the Consumer Product Safety Commission in 1972 under the Consumer Product Safety Act to "protect the public against unreasonable risks of injuries associated with consumer products." The commission has jurisdiction over more than 15,000 types of products such as toys, cribs, and chemicals. Through recalls, research, and safety education, they have contributed to a 30 percent reduction in the death and injury rate over the past three decades.
