DEMAND A CONSUMER ADVOCATE WHO PROTECTS CONSUMERS
Help us reach our goal of 10,000 messages
If Big Tobacco, crooked chemical corporations and President Trump get their way, another industry shill will sit on a commission charged with protecting consumers against unscrupulous corporations and their harmful products.
With her record, it’s unlikely that Trump’s nominee, Dana Baiocco, would protect anything but corporate interests. Baiocco is dangerous and unfit to serve on the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) but her nomination could see a Senate floor vote as early as next week.
Tell your Senator that Baiocco should not be confirmed for this crucial public safety role.
The CPSC sets federal regulations, develops uniform safety standards and conducts research into product-related illnesses and injury. The jobs of the CPSC commissioners exist so that you don’t have to worry about whether that new sofa or cell phone you’re buying will harm you or your family.
Baiocco has devoted her career as a lawyer to defending defective and dangerous products.
She represented clients such as Yamaha, which manufactured ATVs linked to multiple deadly roll-over accidents; Volkswagen, which cheated on emission standards; Mattel, which manufactured toys containing high levels of lead paint; and RJ Reynolds, a tobacco company that hid the known hazards of smoking for decades, and waged a deceitful campaign to encourage people to feel “safe” smoking at home by promoting the extensive use of toxic flame retardant chemicals in mattresses and furniture.
Your senators will be voting on this dangerous nominee soon, and they need to hear from you. Urge them to block Dana Baiocco and demand a commissioner who will protect everyone living in the United States.
