US Firm Recalls China-Made Cots – BBC News

From BBC News:

US baby furniture supplier Simplicity is recalling about one million Chinese-made cots that have been linked to at least two infant deaths. The adjustable side of the cot can detach, creating a dangerous gap that may trap a baby, said the US Consumer Commission (CPSC).

Yet CPSC added that it was a design issue, rather than the fact the cots were assembled in China. Eleven Simplicity models are affected, sold at Wal-Mart and other retailers. “This recall isn’t a China-made problem,” said a spokeswoman. “It’s more about hardware and crib design and less about it being assembled in China.” [Full Text]
