Drawstring- Children’s Clothing

 

In July 2011, CPSC approved a new federal safety rule for drawstrings in children’s outerwear. The final rule designates children’s upper outerwear in sizes 2T through 12, with neck or hood drawstrings, and children’s upper outerwear in sizes 2T through 16, with certain waist or bottom drawstrings, as substantial product hazards. Drawstrings can catch or become entangled with objects, such as a car door or playground slide, posing dragging, strangulation entrapment hazards to children.

KidKonsignNW WILL NOT accept any upper outerwear clothing with drawstrings, such as jackets, coats, sweatshirts, etc.

 

If you remove the drawstring, we can still accept it.

Cribs

 

Beginning June 28, 2011, all cribs manufactured and sold (including resale) must comply with new and improved federal safety standards. The new rules, which apply to full-size and non full-size cribs, prohibit the manufacture or sale of traditional drop-side rail cribs, strengthen crib slats and mattress supports, improve the quality of hardware and require more rigorous testing. The details of the rule are available on CPSC’s website. CPSC gives questions and answers on the new standards here.
