Infant cushion ban proposed
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has proposed to ban infant cushions, which have been involved in 35 infant suffocations.
The cushions have soft, fabric coverings and are loosely filled with plastic foam beads or pellets. They are easily flattened to create a nest so that the infant lies prone on them. The cushions can conform to the face or body of an infant and are intended for use by infants.
