Albany, NY - Paterson Signs Statewide Sale Ban of Deadly Baby Cribs
Albany, NY - Drop-side cribs will soon be banned in New York state, after Governor David Paterson signed a bill yesterday that bans the sale, import, manufacture and distribution of those cribs throughout the state.
The law takes effect in October.
The cribs have been linked to multiple child deaths and injuries, and more than nine million have been recalled nationwide.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission recently voted in favor of proposing new mandatory standards for cribs, including a federal ban on drop-side cribs.
