Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association Applauds Congressional Juvenile Products Safety Caucus
JPMA Thanks Congressmen for Support of Juvenile Product Safety

MOUNT LAUREL, NJ – October 1, 2014 – The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) applauds Congressman Luke Messer and Congressman Scott Peters on their announcement to form the Juvenile Products Safety Caucus (JPSC). Held yesterday, the JPMA promoted educating the general public on current innovations that improve the safety of juvenile products and brought Members of Congress together in order to promote juvenile products, their safe use, the innovation that can be found in the industry and the role of products in making child rearing safer and easier.

“JPMA recognizes that the juvenile products industry impacts every family through the use of its products and has a long history of providing parents and caregivers with the peace of mind that their child is safe,” said JPMA executive director Kelly Mariotti. “We believe with the formation of a Safety Caucus all stakeholders will come together to advance the public’s knowledge of innovation and safety as they relate to juvenile products.”

The JPSC will strive to cultivate awareness in considering innovative policy solutions and strengthen bipartisan relationships through the following:

  • Promoting dialogue on the impact of safety on the lives of children
  • Providing information on innovative policy strategies
  • Presenting events featuring a wide array of products that impact and improve the function and safety of the American family

“We couldn’t be more proud of the juvenile products industry and warmly thank Congressman Messer and Congressman Peters for their support,” added Mariotti. “It’s important that everyone prioritize the safety of our children. After all, they are the future of America.”
