Furniture maker renews warning after 2 kids die
NEW YORK -- Lane Home Furniture urged people to check if they own a cedar chest it stopped making nearly 30 years ago, after two children recently suffocated inside of them.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said a latch on the chest automatically locks when closed. The latch can't be opened from inside the chest. Lane originally recalled about 12 million of the chests in 1996 after other deaths.
The chests were made between 1912 and 1987 and can be identified by the Lane and Virginia Maid brands inside of them. Consumers who own the chest should remove the latch and call Lane at 1-800-327-6944 for new hardware.
