Safety & Recalled Items
KidKonsignNW wants to do our best to only offer safe products to our customers. So, we ask that every consignor makes sure the items they are bringing have not been recalled. As the owner of the item, it is the Consignor’s Responsibility to make sure they have not been recalled.
We have highlighted a few major items and their requirements to meet safety standards, but we cannot list all of them. So, we have also provided links to helpful product safety websites so you as a consignor can be sure that your items for sale have not been recalled.
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. CPSC Drawstring Safety Rule.
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.
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. Cribs manufactured prior to July 23, 2010 will not be accepted.
KidKonsignNW will only accept cribs that fall into these two categories:
- Cribs manufactured after June 28, 2011
- Cribs manufactured between July 23, 2010 and June 28, 2011 can be consigned ONLY if the consignor can provide a certificate of compliance from the crib’s manufacturer/retailer to show that the crib meets the new standards. Certificate of compliance requirements can be viewed here.
