Comment from Eve Shapiro

The is a Comment on the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Proposed Rule: Safety Standard for Magnet Sets

For related information, Open Docket Folder


As a pediatrician, I am concerned about the risk these magnets pose to children. I do not believe that warning labels will be effective. Purchasers will underestimate the ability of children to gain access to these items and will not keep them out of reach effectively. I believe they should not be permitted in most electronic and other devices. Thank you, Eve Shapiro MD
