Lafayette, LA (KPEL News) - Parents in Louisiana, Texas, and every state in America should feel safe when purchasing an item specifically manufactured for babies and children. Unfortunately, that's not always the case. Enter the Consumer Product Safety Commission who issues recalls and explains how families can either get money back or make the product safely usable.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission, an independent federal regulatory agency, monitors consumer goods in an effort to:

protect the public against unreasonable risks of injury or death from consumer products through education, safety standards activities, regulation, and enforcement.

Their staff reviews about 8,000 death certificates each year from all 50 states, including Louisiana and Texas, and the District of Columbia. They look for unintentional product-related deaths. They also dive into roughly 400,000 product-related injuries, cases generated by the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS).

The commission makes recall information public through their website, with information for consumers about who to contact if they have purchased a recalled item.

Jool Baby is remedying the problem by sending consumers a free repair kit. The process is cumbersome, though. The CPSC website instructs customers to stop using the swing for sleep immediately and gives the following instructions:
