FINALLY !! U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission voted in a 3-0 unanimous decision
Three people have saved America!!!!!!!!
New standards have been set concerning the safety of infant swings in the United States.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission voted in a 3-0 unanimous decision to approve a new federal mandatory safety standard for the swing, in order to better prevent injuries and deaths to children.
Infant swings are stationary products with a frame and mechanisms enabling infants to swing in a seated position. The swings are intended for use with infants from birth until the child can sit up unassisted and have become popular tools for use by children at early ages.
The new federal standard requires a stronger, more explicit warning label, a stability test, a test preventing unintentional folding, restraint system tests, the cradle swing surface to remain relatively flat while in motion and at rest, electrically powered swings must be designed to prevent battery leakage and overheating, toy mobiles must be designed to ensure the toys do not detach when pulled, and new dynamic and static load requirements have been set as well.
Between May of 2011 and May of this year 351 reports of infant swing-related incidents were received by the CPSC, two relating in fatalities and 24 resulting in other injuries.
These new mandates will be in effect beginning May 7th of 2013."Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack.” -- Gen. George S. Patton
