WARNING --- NOTICE!!!
OPENED NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS OR NON-PRESCRIPTION DRUGS You must assess for yourself whether these items are appropriate for you and whether you feel they are safe for your own use.
USED OR OLDER BIKE HELMETS A bike helmet that's been in an accident - even a minor one - probably will not adequately protect the wearer. Also, some reports say the styrofoam-like cushioning in bike helmets tends to break down after five years or so; thus, older helmets won't provide good protection. Do your own careful assessment and research before you use any used or older helmet.
USED CRIB MATTRESSES Some believe that older crib mattresses (especially those that in any way have their covers damaged) are associated with a higher incidence of SIDS. Do an internet search on the issue before you offer or request one of these items.
