CPSC Investigating Child's Death in Front-Loading Washer

The Los Angeles Times reports that the CPSC has launched an investigation into this week's "accidental death of an Orange County child caught in a washing machine." A spokesperson for the agency said that "investigators will examine the front-loading washer to determine if the design poses a safety risk." The machine in question, "a Kenmore 417, features an 'easy start' button that is 20 inches from the floor."
