Tampering with Consumer ProductsDefinitions
Section 1365(g) of Title 18 defines "consumer product," "labeling,"
"serious bodily injury," and "bodily injury." "Consumer product" is defined
include "food," "drug," "device," and "cosmetic" as such terms are
defined in section 201 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21
§ 321). The term also includes any other "household product" that is
consumed by individuals or used for purposes of personal care or in the
performance of services rendered within the household, and that is designed
be consumed or expended in the course of such consumption or use. Thus, it
covers such household products as waxes, detergents, air fresheners, toilet
paper, etc., but it does not include durable products such as vacuum
brooms, brushes, or similar items since these products are not intended to
used up, though, of course, they do wear out. See H.R. Rep. No. 93
H.R. 2174, 98th Congress, 1st Sess., at 8, reprinted in 1983 U.S.
Cong. and Adm. News at 1263.|
The term "labeling" includes not only the label (see 21
§ 321(k)) on the immediate container of the product, but any other
material accompanying the product.
