Child's Death Prompts Children's Storage Rack Recall

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The death of an eight-month-old boy has prompted the recall of 36,000 boy's and girl's storage racks made in China for Texas-based Jetmax International.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the boy died when he pulled on a rack and the top rail landed on his neck.

The safety commission says young children are at risk of injury because the wooden storage rack can tip over, posing a danger of entrapment and suffocation.

Jetmax sold the three-level storage racks under the brand "Home Trend Kids 9 Canvas Bin Boy's and Girl's Organizers."

The were sold at Wal-Mart stores nationwide from August 2004 through July 2005 and at Ollie's stores nationwide from July 2006 through last June.

If you have one of these products, contact the company for a free repair kit that stabilizes the unit, at 800-689-2168.
