WASHINGTON, D.C. - In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Jetmax International Ltd., of Irving, Texas is voluntarily recalling about 36,000 boy's and girl's storage racks with canvas totes.
The storage rack can tip over, posing an entrapment and suffocation hazard to young children.
CPSC has received one report of a death involving an 8-month-old boy who was asphyxiated after he pulled on the storage rack and it fell over on him. The top rail landed on the infant's neck. No other incidents have been reported.
The storage rack is wooden with three levels and nine removable canvas totes. There are wooden handles on each side of the rack. The boy's storage rack has natural color wood with red, yellow, green, and navy canvas totes. The girl's storage rack has white colored wood with pink, yellow, lime, and purple canvas totes.
Wal-Mart sold the storage rack under the brand "Home Trend Kids 9 Canvas Bin Boy's and Girl's Organizers."
The storage racks were manufactured in China.
They were sold at Wal-Mart stores nationwide from August 2004 through July 2005 and Ollie's stores nationwide from July 2006 through June 2007 for about $40. Consumers should immediately stop children from using the recalled storage racks and contact Jetmax International to receive a free repair kit that adds stability to the base.
For additional information, contact Jetmax at (800) 541-7479 between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. CT
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is charged with protecting the public from unreasonable risks of injury or death associated with the use of thousands of types of consumer products under the agency’s jurisdiction. Deaths, injuries, and property damage from consumer product incidents cost the nation more than $1 trillion annually. CPSC is committed to protecting consumers and families from products that pose a fire, electrical, chemical or mechanical hazard. CPSC's work to help ensure the safety of consumer products - such as toys, cribs, power tools, cigarette lighters and household chemicals -– contributed to a decline in the rate of deaths and injuries associated with consumer products over the past 40 years.
Federal law bars any person from selling products subject to a publicly-announced voluntary recall by a manufacturer or a mandatory recall ordered by the Commission.
