Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

The Consumer Product Safety Commission’s safety standard for disposable and novelty lighters requires these items to meet specified requirements for child resistance.

That value is currently $2.50 but the CPSC has now issued a final rule that, effective Dec. 3, increases this amount to $2.75.
