CPSC Warns Consumers About Two Products 
This month, the CPSC has issued warnings cautioning consumers about two potentially harmful products. They advise consumers to immediately stop using the “La-La-Me Infant Loungers” because they do not comply with mandatory federal safety standards for infant sleep products, posing a suffocation risk and fall hazard to infants. Consumers should also immediately stop using “Iraza High-Powered Magnetic Ball Sets” because the 512 Piece 5mm Magnetic Ball Sets pose a risk of serious injury or death if ingested. CPSC testing found that the sets violate the requirements of the mandatory federal safety standard for magnets. When loose, high-powered magnets are swallowed, they can attract to each other, or to another metal object, and become lodge in the digestive system.
