Manufacturers of high chairs that killed two children and injured an estimated 49,900 infants and toddlers from 2011 to 2016 will have another year to sell the baby-killing product to unsuspecting parents, thanks to our nation’s agency that is supposed to protect consumers.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission, which is being stacked by Trump appointees, voted unanimously to give companies a year to comply with the new standards.

“The implementation date only refers to the date of manufacture, so it will be well over a year before consumers can be sure the product meets this new standard—a whole year of new babies missing out,” said Nancy Cowles, executive director of Kids In Danger. “We always look for a shorter implementation time to get the safer products to consumers faster.”

The commission unanimously approved the voluntary standard requiring high chairs to be more stable, have restraint systems and carry warning labels. Common accidents included falls when the child tried to climb into or out of the high chair, the chair tipping over or a restraint, tray or lock on the chair failing.

2. Regulators?

. . . and yet they'll applaud him for it. Can't get regulation get in the way of free trade in Trumpland.

I mean, if fracking's okay then anything - absolutely anything goes.

3. When manufacture ceases

some enterprising philanthropist should buy all remaining - and destroy them. That would be a benefit to society.
