Four Honored with CPSC Commendation Awards

Four people, including Rachel Weintraub, director of Product Safety and senior counsel for the Consumer Federation of America, received them last week.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission announced four people received the Chairman's Commendation Awards for significantly contributing to consumer product safety. This was the second annual presentation of the awards, which were created by CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum.

"These individuals deserve to be recognized for their hard work to advance consumer product safety. They have saved countless numbers of lives through their advocacy, working to educate parents and industry, making toys safer with better labeling and safe cribs available to families who couldn't afford one," she said.

The recipients are:

  • Judith Bannon, executive director of Cribs for Kids®, a national infant safe sleep initiative that she started in 1998.
  • Dr. Ik-Whan Kwon, director of St. Louis University's Center for Supply Chain Management Studies, which in 2009 became the first to offer university-level product safety courses for product safety professionals within industry.
  • Stephen Teret, JD, MPH, a professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and a pioneer in the field of public health law.
  • Rachel Weintraub, director of Product Safety and senior counsel for the Consumer Federation of America, who had a lead role getting the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 enacted into law.
