(Washington, DC) -- The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the San Diego-based company Infantino is recalling infant teethers. The organization says a plastic nose on the teethers can detach and poses a choking hazard. Infantino has received eight reports of the nose detaching, including one report of a child choking. The teethers were sold at Babies "R" Us, Pottery Barn Kids and other specialty stores from June 2006 through this month. About 28-thousand of the yellow and orange plastic Infantino Lion Teethers were sold.
Hooker Furniture Recalls Bunk Beds (Washington, DC) -- A voluntary recall of bunk beds is being conducted. The recall involves bunk beds from Hooker Furniture Corporation of Martinsville, Virginia. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the beds have gaps between parts of the upper bunk that could allow a child's body to pass through, but not a child's head, posing an entrapment or strangulation hazard. The beds were manufactured in Malaysia and Vietnam and involve the model names of "Albany Park," "Swedish Accents," "Mariner's Landing" and "Chelsea's Place." They were sold by Hooker Furniture retailers nationwide from August 2005 through August of this year. (Copyright 2007 by Newsroom Solutions) RNS-12-14-07 0133CST
