The top five hazards in the home have been identified in a Press Release from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). According to the CPSC, "each year, 33.1 million people are injured by consumer products in the home. To keep Americans informed of dangers, the CPSC has identified the top five hidden home hazards - associated with products that people may be using everyday, but are unaware of the dangers that they can cause. These home hazards are often unseen or unnoticed by consumers." The top five hazards are: magnets, recalled products, tip-overs, windows & coverings, and pool & spa drains.
