Jetmax International Ltd., of Irving, Texas is voluntarily recalling about 36,000 children’s storage racks with canvas totes because the storage rack is unstable and can tip over, trap and possibly suffocate young children.
So far there has been one report of a death. An 8-month-old boy was asphyxiated pulling on the storage rack which fell on top of him. The top rail hit infant’s neck preventing breathing.
The storage rack is wooden with three levels and nine removable canvas totes. There are wooden handles on each side of the rack. The boy’s storage rack has natural color wood with red, yellow, green, and navy canvas totes. The girl’s storage rack has white colored wood with pink, yellow, lime, and purple canvas totes.
“Home Trend Kids 9 Canvas Bin Boy’s and Girl’s Organizers” were sold at Wal-Mart stores nationwide from August 2004 through July 2005 and Ollie’s stores nationwide from July 2006 through June 2007 for about $40. Consumers should immediately stop children from using the recalled storage racks and contact Jetmax International to receive a free repair kit that adds stability to the base.
