The death of an 8-month-old boy prompted the recall of 36,000 boy's and girl's storage racks made in China for Texas-based Jetmax International.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the boy died when he
pulled on a rack and the top rail landed on his neck.

The safety commission says young children are at risk of injury
because the wooden storage rack can tip over, posing a danger of
entrapment and suffocation.

Jetmax sold the three-level storage racks under the brand "Home
Trend Kids 9 Canvas Bin Boy's and Girl's Organizers."

They were sold at Wal-Mart stores nationwide from August 2004 through July 2005 and at Ollie's stores nationwide from July 2006 through last June.
