anyone know anything about safety standards on cots? When we got ds3 (aged 13 months) up this afternoon one of the spindles/bars on his cot has sheared in 2 , the top half had come out and was on the floor, leaving the other half sticking up with a really sharp point. He was fine but what might have happened doesn't bear thinking about. I bought it last June and have my receipt, in the UK I'd have been able to fight my case, but here I need a bit more ammunition I think.Thanks

Does it have a label quoting the relevant EU legislation reference or TUV approved?

No, I can't see anything on it, it might have said on the box but we haven't got it any longer! I have called the shop but the person responsible for the baby dept is off today so they can't do anything until tomorrow shock
