Millworks apparel and modern millwork are among the brands that have been targeted by the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), which has launched an investigation into the safety of their products.
The CPSC has launched a probe into whether Millworks, which has been a leading manufacturer of infant, child and family clothing for decades, was responsible for the death and injury of a 3-year-old in 2015.
The complaint against the company comes from a woman who said she was breastfeeding her daughter when she fell into a “massive crush” on a large piece of millwork in Millworks’ Millwork store in San Diego, California.
She was taken to a local hospital, where she died.
“I went to the hospital with a large amount of blood on my face and neck and had to take a blood pressure and COVID-19 test to determine my pulse rate,” said the woman, who asked to remain anonymous because of the sensitivity of the investigation.
“The doctors couldn’t tell me what the cause of death was, but I could tell them it was a crush on a millwork.”
The CPSc also issued a statement on Wednesday saying it is investigating whether Millworkers products are unsafe for infants and children, and has issued a public health advisory for millworkers.
The agency says that Millworks has not yet responded to the CPSC’s public health warnings.
The statement said the agency is working with Millworks and other companies to make sure their products meet the safety and quality requirements.
