Is the Chairwoman of the CPSC dabbling in prognostication? Turns out she may give Ms. Cleo a run for her money.
While we at BuckyHQ have been working to stay in business and fight the CPSC’s Administrative Complaint against us, it seems that Chairwoman Inez Tennenbaum could have saved us a lot of effort. Why? You see, based on the recent timeline of our communications with the CPSC, we can reach only one conclusion:
Inez Tenenbaum actually looked into the future when deciding on the fate of our company.
Sounds crazy, right? Not so much.
In 2010, we began working alongside the CPSC to make sure Buckyballs products stayed where they belong: in the hands of responsible adults. Or so we thought. In July, 2012, through a series of events so convoluted they rival a scam on the Psychic Readers Network, we found out that working ‘alongside’ the CPSC was never part of their plan.
Want proof of CPSC’s newfound psychic abilities?
July 10th: We were requested by the Commission to propose a Corrective Action Plan to make our products safer, with a deadline of July 24th.
July 24th, 4pm: We submitted a comprehensive Corrective Action Plan with numerous suggestions concerning the safety of our products and further educating consumers and retailers. Then we waited for feedback…
July 25th, 11am: CPSC filed an Administrative Complaint and ran to the media. In the hours between 4pm and 11am, the staff allegedly “fully” reviewed and rejected our CAP, the Commissioners voted, their lawyers drafted and then filed a lawsuit.
Here’s where it gets just plain spooky…
Through a Freedom of Information request, we’ve discovered this document showing that the vote to sue our company was presented to the Commissioners on July 23rd, a day before our Corrective Action Plan was to be submitted. The vote to put us out of business was due before July 25th, giving the Commissioners or staff little or no time to actually consider our Corrective Action Plan submitted at 4 p.m. on the 24th. The vote was requested before they even received our plan.
So, how to explain this overlap of such a crucial timeline? How could the CPSC say they considered our Corrective Action Plan when they may never have actually read it?
We can only conclude one thing: Miss Inez & the Consumer
Product Psychic Safety Commission can see into the future!
