Product safety at the Ports

The Consumer Products Safety Commission is going to be assigning its own personnel to major ports, starting on the west coast. CSPC will be working with Customs and Border Protection to target suspect shipments for CPSC inspection. According to news reports, it remains unclear how many CPSC officials will be posted to the ports. Apparently, last year CPSC stopped 200 shipments.
