Unsafe baby products still available for purchase

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is reminding parents and caregivers that not all baby products are safe.

For starters, drop side cribs. More than eleven million have been recalled because of strangulation dangers.

Beware of soft bedding. The C-P-S-C says nearly half of all crib deaths are from suffocation.

And don't use sleep positioners or baby sling carriers which can cause suffocation.

Recently bumbo seats were recalled for a fix. 21 skull fractures were reported after babies fell out of seats placed on elevated surfaces.

Check the government website, SaferProducts.Gov for potentially dangerous products, and products that have already been recalled.
