Beware used goods
THE Office of Fair Trading has warned Queenslanders about the danger of buying unsafe second-hand products. The warning came after the death of an infant in the UK who suffocated while sleeping a second-hand cot. Fair Trading acting executive director Tony Johnson said that consumers should always get a copy of safety instructions whenever they bought second-hand nursery products. “If the product doesn’t have instructions with or on it, make sure you can get them elsewhere before buying,” he said.
