The ASTM Infant Feeding and Support Products Incident Data Analysis Task Group met on March 31, 2022, to review and discuss incident data related to infant feeding and support products. The meeting was led by Task Group Chair Amy St. Germain. Twenty-five people participated in the meeting, including Tim Smith, Division of Human Factors, and other CPSC staff.
During the meeting, members of the Task Group evaluated data previously supplied by the CPSC, identified gaps in the existing data, and requested additional detail from CPSC in order to inform the safety considerations that will be addressed in the proposed standard. The group consensus was to file requests with the CPSC for additional data that are critical in the development of a protective standard.
The next meeting of the Task Group will be scheduled in the coming weeks. We will share details as they are available.
