U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission Chair Ann Brown has set some goals to be achieved prior to giving up her post. Her to-do list includes setting standards to improve the safety of baby bath seats, mattresses, and bed rails, plus development of child-resistant packaging for baby oil and similar products to prevent aspiration. She also intends to bring a major recall or lawsuit regarding an unspecified "very dangerous product that kills and maims children." Ms. Brown, who has chaired the CPSC since 1994, will resign on Nov. 1, 2001, or sooner if the Senate confirms a new candidate before that date.
