Baby Furniture Outlet Baby Cribs and Playpens Present Hazard to Infants
The Consumer Product Safety Commission today announced that Small Wonders full-size baby cribs imported from 1981 to 1986 by Baby Furniture Outlet Inc., Marathon, Florida are banned. The cribs, distributed nationwide, failed to meet one or more CPSC safety requirements with respect to dimensions, spacing of crib components, hardware, construction, and assembly instructions or labeling. Not all cribs present the same hazard but hazards, which may be present, include strangulation, head entrapment, pinching, laceration and falling.
