36,000 Chinese-made children's storage racks sold at Wal-Mart Stores in the United States were recalled Friday after a baby was suffocated by an overturned rack, said the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
The wooden storage rack, manufactured for Irving, Texas-based Jetmax International Ltd. has three levels and nine removable canvas totes.
One model has red, blue, yellow and green canvas totes, and another model has pastel-colored canvas totes.
An 8-month-old boy suffocated after he pulled on a storage rack and it fell over on him, with the top rail landing on his neck.
Wal-Mart sold the storage rack organizers under the brand "Home Trend Kids" from August 2004 through July 2005 for about $40, the agency said. The product was also sold at Ollie's stores from July 2006 through June 2007.
This is just another instance in a rash of recalls of products made in China.
