CPSC Sues Amazon to Force Recall of Hazardous Products Sold on

On July 14, 2021, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) filed an administrative complaint against, the world’s largest retailer, to force Amazon to accept responsibility for recalling potentially hazardous products sold on

The complaint charges that the specific products are defective and pose a risk of serious injury or death to consumers and that Amazon is legally responsible to recall them. The named products include 24,000 faulty carbon monoxide detectors that fail to alarm, numerous children’s sleepwear garments that are in violation of the flammable fabric safety standard risking burn injuries to children, and nearly 400,000 hair dryers sold without the required immersion protection devices that protect consumers against shock and electrocution.
