CPSC’s laws and regulations apply to anyone who sells or distributes consumer products. This includes thrift stores, consignment stores, charities, and individuals holding yard sales and flea markets. Used products have caused injuries and deaths and have been the subject of numerous recalls.
Resellers should closely examine their products in inventory prior to resale to make sure that their products are safe and compliant with federal laws.
When in doubt, throw it out! Products used in the nursery, especially cribs and bassinets, have caused deaths and have been the subject of numerous recalls of millions of units. Do not sell any broken or wobbly nursery furniture, or durable infant product that is missing parts, even if it has not been recalled. A baby's life could depend on it. The risk is too high.
We urge you to take a few extra steps when you sell your used products and to follow the advice in our Reseller's Guide to ensure that you are only selling safe products.
