A children's cot that poses a serious threat to the safety and wellbeing of any baby or young child that comes into contact with it has been recalled from the market, effective immediately.
The '3-in-1 wooden baby cot crib toddler bed pine wood with mattress' from Maccess Pty. Ltd. trading as 'AlwaysDirect.com.au' has been whipped off the market following revelations it does not comply with Australian mandatory safety standards.
The Government website indicates that the cot fails various design, construction, performance and labelling requirements and in turn, poses numerous potential risks to infants and children when it comes to entrapment, choking and falls.
If you have purchased a cot and your child is using one, it is recommended you should stop using the cot immediately and contact Always Direct by email to arrange a refund.
