Children's Storage Rack Recalled After Baby Death

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.
