Safety first: These 5 dangerous cots have been recalled nationally in May

Baby in cot

Five cots sold across Australia have been recalled over the last few weeks, due to concerns about their safety and the possibility of injuries for babies and toddlers.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has made the recalls after concerns about the proliferation of unsafe, budget furniture being sold to unsuspecting mums and dads online.

We’d remind parents looking for products for their children to always, always ensure they comply with Australian Safety Standards.
