Rental Companies Granted More Time to Buy Cribs That Meet New Safety Standards

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has voted to give rental companies more time to buy cribs that meet new safety standards.

The commission voted Friday to extend the deadline for short-term rental companies to buy the new cribs from today, June 28, 2011, to Dec. 28, 2012. That’s the same deadline for child-care facilities and hotels to buy the safer cribs.

The commission said that manufacturers and retailers will still be required to shift to the new designs by June 28, 2011.

The new standards halt the manufacture and sale of traditional drop-side cribs, which the commission says are dangerous. They will also require stronger mattress supports, more durable crib hardware and more rigorous safety testing.

More information on crib safety is available at the Consumer Product Safety Commission site.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
