The Lunar Year of the Dragon is coming, many couples are looking forward to having a "dragon baby" in the Year of the Dragon. In addition to the â€œheads of peopleâ€ in the obstetrics and gynaecology clinics and wards of hospitals, the sales of baby products have gradually warmed up, and cribs have long been included in the shopping plan by many prospective parents. The most important thing for consumers to buy a crib is safety. However, the reporter recently found that the quality and safety of cribs sold in some baby markets in Beijing is worrying.
Liu Hua is a prospective mother in Jinan, Shandong Province. She has been pregnant for more than seven months. During her exchanges, the reporter can feel the excitement and excitement of her upcoming motherhood. But in the past few days, a small crib has made her brainstorming, and it is difficult to choose from a variety of varieties and designs. In recent years, news of cribs hurting infants and young children from time to time has been reported in newspapers, and many incidents of cribs that occurred this year due to security problems have also aggravated consumer concerns.
Crib "lying" quality worry children's furniture standards are expected to be released
In order to explore the market situation, on December 22, 2011, the reporter visited the Bairong International Commodity City in Beijing's South Third Ring Road. On the 4th floor of the mall, some consumers are buying cribs. Ms. Wang told reporters that she was picking a crib for her 2-year-old son and turned around in the mall. Although the variety of products is diverse, the styles are basically pull-down sidebars. Judging from the appearance of the selection of the crib.
The reporter visited a number of shops in Bairong in the name of purchasing a crib. When some shops just entered the door, they smelled a pungent wood smell from a crib; some side beds of the crib were loose, and they felt that the bed was not strong enough; some between the crib mattress and the outer edge of the bed The gap has a finger width and is easy to pinch the baby. Zhang, a shop owner, learned that after the reporter was a fellow, he said that some cribs were only registered as a trademark and then produced through small workshops. The quality was difficult to guarantee. Some merchants claimed that â€œthe wood used New Zealand imported pineâ€ was a gimmick.
A few days ago, the reporter saw at the Lok Wangjing store that there were two cribs in the supermarket for sale. The sales staff told the reporter that the two products are all solid wood, safe and non-toxic, and can be used with confidence. However, the reporter carefully observed the bed and noticed that one of the wooden surfaces was rough and not very smooth, and there was a hidden danger of scratching the baby.
The reporter recently called several domestic furniture industry associations and enterprises to learn about some aspects of the crib industry, but the interviews were rejected for various reasons.
Du Fenglin, a baby marketing expert, said that the domestic baby industry is developing rapidly. Domestic brands have a certain gap in quality and technology compared with foreign countries. Competition is relatively disorderly and low-level competition is more obvious. In recent years, many manufacturers who were not professionally engaged in baby products have also begun to get involved in cribs, hoping to get a piece of food and promote the prosperity of the industry; but at the same time, it is easy to copy and copy the original production experience, lack of professional technology and equipment support, easy Quality problems have arisen.
In the survey, the reporter found that many cribs are under the banner of international standards or international certifications, especially EU standards are often mentioned by the merchants. However, when it comes to the specific conditions of the standard or certification, the manufacturer is often speechless. In Bairong International Commodities, the reporter found that the implementation standards for crib products are mostly enterprise standards.
It is understood that the production of crib products needs to comply with the national standard "Limited Hazardous Substances in Wood Furniture for Interior Decoration Materials" (GB 18584-2001) and "General Technical Conditions for Wood Furniture" (GB/T 3324-2008). Li Jiguang, director of the Beijing Wood Furniture Quality Supervision and Inspection Station, told reporters that consumers must clearly check the product test report and instructions when purchasing. If it is imported furniture, it must first meet the relevant standards of the country in which it is produced, and then must also comply with the corresponding mandatory standards of the exporting country.
Regarding the production standards of cribs and the quality problems detected by the test, the reporter sent a letter to the National Furniture Standardization Technical Committee (hereinafter referred to as the â€œFurniture Standardization Committeeâ€) for consultation and understanding. Recently, the reporter received a specific and detailed reply. The furniture standard committee said that in the usual inspection and testing, the quality problems detected by the crib are mainly manifested in: the height of the slab and the gap are not up to standard, the amount of formaldehyde released exceeds the standard, and the soluble heavy metal exceeds the standard. In addition to the appearance quality of the crib, another major concern for consumers is the invisible quality: whether the crib has odor and whether the formaldehyde content exceeds the standard.
According to reports, at present, the standards for infants and children's furniture approved by China have not specified the limit requirements and test methods for volatile organic compounds such as formaldehyde and soluble heavy metals. According to media reports, China's first universal mandatory standard for children's furniture, "General Technical Conditions for Children's Furniture," is expected to be released in the near future.
For the first time, the standard clarifies that children's furniture should be suitable for children aged 3-14 years. The standard includes nine parts including toxic and hazardous substances and safety warning signs. In addition to the detailed definition of the sharp corners, protruding parts, cavities, gap size and stability of children's furniture, there are strict restrictions on the control of dozens of toxic and harmful substances such as formaldehyde and soluble heavy metals.
When purchasing a crib, consumers must fully consider their safety from the aspects of brand, implementation standards, design, and use. When choosing, pay attention to the principle of combining safety and practicality, issue formal invoices and relevant vouchers, and guard against price and advertising. The trap of propaganda.
