WASHINGTON – Consumers can now follow the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on Twitter and other Internet social media platforms.  The CPSC has launched CPSC2.0 to provide consumers with new ways to find recall and product safety information.

“Through social media, CPSC can directly reach millions of the moms, dads and others who need our safety information the most,” said CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum.
