As mandated by the State of Michigan and the Children’s Product Safety Act (2000 PA 219) requires the department of regulatory affairs (https://www.michigan.gov/lara/0,4601,7-154-63294_5529_49572-296176–,00.html ) to maintain a comprehensive list of unsafe or recalled children’s products (includes, but is not limited to, cribs, toddler beds, car seats, high chairs, booster chairs, bath seats, gates, carriers, strollers, walkers, infant swings, etc.).
In addition, this act further requires child care providers to conspicuously post on the premises an updated copy of the list of recalled products provided by the department. A conspicuous place means a location where parents, staff and others can easily see it.
This comprehensive list is posted below (as the list is updated) but is also available on the last page of each edition of our Michigan Child Care Matters newsletter. Posting the list found in our newsletter ensures that we are in compliance with the Children’s Product Safety Act. In an effort to further inform you we have added this listing and links under the recall tab on our class webpage via the OLR school website.
