It's Not the Bottom Line, It's Our Babies!

A few days ago I passed along information about a Consumer Product Safety Commission warning to immediately cease using either the Simplicity 3-in-1 or 4-in-1 bassinets due to significant dangers of the products that has resulted in two infant deaths.

This company has had issues and deaths on their hands before, and an article in The Washington Post details the past issues, and the reprehensible behavior of the current owners, who refused to issue a recall after the first death to protect their business. A second child died shortly thereafter. The CPSC took the unusual step of issuing the warning and instructing the stores to remove the bassinets because the company refuses to do so.

This shocking lack of morality in a business is not terribly surprising, but as a consumer we do not need to stand for it by further supporting their business practices.
