Nancy Beck is Wrong for Consumers, Workers, and First Responders

64 Consumer and Environmental Groups Voice Opposition to CPSC Nominee

Washington, D.C. – Nancy Beck has been nominated to serve as Chair of the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The agency is responsible for ensuring that the more than 15,000 consumer products under its jurisdiction are safe. Beck’s career has been focused on blocking or weakening health and safety protections against toxic chemicals by overstating uncertainty, playing down results accepted by mainstream science, and excluding relevant evidence when assessing chemical safety. Consumers, workers, and first responders would be less safe if Beck is confirmed.
