President Acts on Imported Product Safety

Based on this press release, it seems it takes a lot of high-ranking people to do something about unsafe imports. Roll call at the new task force includes:
  • the Secretary of Health and Human Services, who shall serve as Chair;
  • the Secretary of State;
  • the Secretary of the Treasury;
  • the Attorney General;
  • the Secretary of Agriculture;
  • the Secretary of Commerce;
  • the Secretary of Transportation;
  • the Secretary of Homeland Security;
  • the Director of the Office of Management and Budget;
  • the United States Trade Representative;
  • the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency;
  • the Chairman of the Consumer Product Safety Commission; and
  • other officers or full-time or permanent part-time employees of the United States, as determined by the Chair, with the concurrence of the head of the department or agency concerned.

Funny, I thought there were already federal agencies charged with this job including CPSC, FDA, Agriculture, and Transportation.
