36:12 : Data samples samples of "ball" or "marble" may include injuries that did not involve the target product.
37:00 : "Officially it will be a performance requirement, but essentially we're banning this product." This directly contradicts what Scott Wolfson said.
42:06 : Nancy Nord wants address hazards without ban, Jeremy midget fails to acknowledge point. Injuries primarily to young children under 5, exploring their environment. And Teenagers mimicking piercings. Pediatric data shows 70% injuries for young children, 20% for teenagers mimicking piercings.
1:06:10 : CPSC admits magnet spheres are appropriate for Ages 9+
1:12:19 : Nord defends magnets, "I guess you're saying, that nobody is able to write a warning label that warns sufficiently... Is that right?", "Why I'm concerned with this.. If we accept that basic premise, then it seems to me, it really does call into question the underlying regulatory adequacy of much of what this agency does.", "A warning for a balloon don't stay with the product, [the method of hazard] never occurred to me... truth be told a balloon probably has a whole lot less utility [than magnets.]", "From a relative standpoint, [balloons are] a real dangerous product compared to this one. Yet, nevertheless, we're saying that warnings are adequate there"
1:22:55 : Robert S. Adler refuses Nord's suggestion of two hazard patterns, clearly just wants a ban.
1:23:55 : Robert S. Adler wants to ban balloons. I wonder what portion of the US population would agree.
1:24:00 : Adler does not seem to understand consumer surplus.
1:36:30 : Midgett doesn't want to discount the innovation of an industry that's under fire.

Nancy Nord is the senior commissioner with 7 years experience, and previous acting chairman. The other three commissioners are 3 years new.
