Tragically, between one and two children die in Australian homes every year as a result of non-compliant corded blinds and curtains. Similar deaths occur regularly across the world and the ACCC is joining international regulators to warn of the hidden dangers associated with corded blinds and curtains.
Two online traders have separately paid infringement notices and provided court enforceable undertakings to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission after admitting that they supplied household cots that did not comply with the mandatory safety standard.
A portable cot is great for sleepovers and travelling, but should not be used for permanent sleeping arrangements. However, you need to use it correctly to avoid injuries to your child.
