The Pittsford-based Empire State Consumer Project is out with its annual holiday safety reminder. Among the concerns this year are nursery furniture and toys.
President Judy Braiman says her research shows on average, across the country 112 children under age 5 die every year from nursery products, and 11 from unsafe toys such as some scooters.
"People put their babies in cribs with soft bedding, pillows, blankets, toys...crib sheets can come off of the mattress, and babies become entangled. It's really pretty bad."
