Another Toy Recalled After a Baby's Death
Jetmax International Ltd. recalled 36,000 toy storage racks after an 8-month-old boy died, startribune.com reports.
The infant was playing with the storage rack and when he tugged on it, the top rail landed on his neck and killed him.
"Young children are at risk of injury when the storage rack can tip over, posing entrapment and suffocation hazard to them," the Cosumer Product Safety comission said Friday on the FOXnews.com website.
The name of the toy was "Home Trend Kids 9 Canvas Bin Boy's and Girl's Organizers." This toy is made in China and its company is located in Irving Texas.
This toy was sold at Wal-Mart from August 2004 to July 2005 and at Ollie's stores from July 2006 to the present.
There were two types of storage racks, one for boys and one for girls.
This was an AP story that was found almost identically on FOXnews.com and startribune.com. Since this story was not written by a local writer for either website, it was obviously just picked up and ran through the respective websites. However, the startribune.com report created a new title and also a new lead whereas the FOXnews.com report just ran the story as is.
