August 2021

In this issues paper, CHOICE welcomes the ACCC's review of infant inclined products and the proposed options to mitigate the risk of infant death or injury that these products present.

CHOICE strongly supports a prohibition on inclined sleep products. These products do not comply with the medical recommendation that infants sleep on a flat, firm surface to avoid asphyxiation and suffocation.

Ultimately, the fact that infant inclined sleep products are currently available on the market despite medical advice provides an example of the need for a General Safety Provision in the Australian Consumer Law.
