Ok so how many times have we heard that mold doesn’t really hurt you? Yes, they say, it can cause allergic responses (sneezing, coughing, asthmatic attacks) but it doesn’t really do anything long-term. No matter how those of us affected by exposure to mold and mycotoxins say it, there are still those that believe it can’t really do any major harm.
My grandson is 19 months old. Before he was born I purchased a Fisher-Price Newborn Rock’N Play Sleeper for my daughter to use. My grandson slept very well in it until he just got too big. In my email today I received an email from Amazon.com stating that Fisher-Price in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission was voluntarily notifying customers of a safety issue. That issue was: Mold can develop between the removable seat cushion and the hard plastic frame of the sleeper when it remains wet/moist or is infrequently cleaned, posing a risk of exposure to mold to infants sleeping in the product. Although mold is not present at the time of purchase, mold growth can occur after use of the product.
So are they now saying mold is a significant problem to health? To read more about it, you can visit the CBS new site below.
