The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission wants parents to stop using crib tents and play yard tents made by Tots in Mind, Inc. The agency said infants and toddlers in cribs with these products attached are at risk of serious injury or death due to strangulation and entrapment hazards. Go HERE for more information. While most retail stores pull recalled items immediately, dangerous products continue to show up at garage sales and at thrift stores for years afterwards.
