The CPSC regulations passed in October 2001 require child-resistant packaging for several common household products and cosmetics containing hydrocarbons, including such products as sunscreen, baby oil, and gas additives.The CPSC also ruled that the poison prevention packaging must be in use by October 16, 2002.
