CPSC considers requiring crib-makers to provide incentives to customers during recalls.

Bloomberg News (1/21, Drajem) reported, “U.S. regulators are considering requiring crib makers to provide customers with refunds and other monetary incentives when the companies’ products are recalled. Recalls of dangerous cribs, which typically involve free kits to repair flaws in the product, have failed to get a full response rate from parents, Consumer Product Safety Commission Chairman Inez Tenenbaum said in prepared testimony to lawmakers in Washington today. Refunds or store credits may be more effective at getting crib owners to respond to recalls, she said.”
