What's the Problem?
CPSC's proposed ban would outlaw the sale of crib bumpers that fail to meet minimum airflow requirements.
The agency is recommending new standards for the sale of all crib bumpers, including a thickness of at least 2 inches for each bumper, and airflow requirements similar to those of mesh liners.
"Without sufficient airflow, infants can suffocate when they roll against the crib bumper and become wedged between bumper and mattress, or when the pillow-like surface of the bumper completely obstructs their mouth and nose," CPSC said.
