Child entrapment and suffocation are not problems of the past. Junked or abandoned appliances
are still dangerous, even if they will “just sit in the garage a few days”.
Before you throw away your old wine cooler or any appliance: Remove the door. Leave
the shelves in place so that children may not easily climb inside.
Never allow children to operate, play with, or crawl inside the appliance.
