Over 2,000,000 cribs recalled -- dropdown sides hurt babies
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a voluntary recall of over two million cribs that are dangerous for children, and the seven manufacturers involved are offering consumers with free repair kits for the crib’s drop-down sides.
The crib makers are Evenflo, Delta Enterprises Corp., Child Craft, Jardine Enterprises, LaJobi, Million Dollar Baby and Simmons Juvenile Products Inc.
According to the CPSC over sixteen (16) infants have been reported trapped in the gap created by their crib’s movable side. The agency is still gathering information about other infants that may have been harmed by these cribs.
What happens? Apparently, the drop-down side, while convenient for parents, can detach from these types of cribs, creating a space where the baby’s head can become trapped and injured.
Cribs Manufactured in 2000 – 2009 Are Recalled: Site Provides Identification Info
Consumers can visit www.cribsafety.org for a list of product identification numbers, etc. provided by the seven participating manufacturers. Meanwhile, the crib makers are still in the process of preparing and shipping the free repair kits. Both the CPSC and the manufacturers warn that these cribs should not be repaired independently at home – the free crib maker kits should be used to fix the defective cribs.
