Yesterday, a reporter from Chengdu Commercial Daily visited some supermarkets and saw that there are various brands of baby stroller products, with prices ranging from three to four hundred yuan to several thousand yuan. The 3C certification marks are clearly visible on the labels or manuals of these strollers. The reporter learned that when buying a baby stroller, it is also very important to distinguish the authenticity of the 3C certification label. Consumers can log on to the website of the National Certification and Accreditation Supervision and Administration Commission and enter the unique code number in the appendix on the 3C label to verify the product brand, toy manufacturer, and model. Wait for the information to be true and consistent to avoid being deceived.
