HHS Secretary to Visit Toys'R'Us to Discuss Import Safety, Preview Trip to China
Date:11/24/2007

WASHINGTON, Nov. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The busy holiday shopping season is underway and many Americans may have questions about the safety of food and products they buy -- many of which are imported. With this in mind, Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt will visit a Los Angeles Toys"R"Us store on Tuesday to talk about import safety and ways to better protect consumers.

Secretary Leavitt recently presented President Bush with an Action Plan developed by an intra-governmental Import Safety Working Group to provide specific recommendations to enhance the safety of the increasing volume of imports entering the United States. Increased penalties of up to $10 million, new certification methods, enhanced enforcement authority and a larger U.S. presence at overseas facilities are just some of the provisions of the Action Plan.

During the visit, the Secretary will also preview his upcoming trip to China, where he hopes to finalize agreements with the Chinese government on the safety of Chinese-made goods exported to the U.S.

Credentialed members of the media are invited to participate in the tour and will have the opportunity to ask questions of Secretary Leavitt at a press availability that will follow.
