Dangerous Drop Side Cribs To Be Discontinued

Posted on in Product Liability

Chicago Tribune encouraged by manufacturer's decision to stop making drop-side cribs. The Chicago Tribune (3/28) editorialized, "Drop-side cribs, with a movable rail that can be raised and lowered, are a staple of baby rooms." However, "they probably won't be for much longer" because "major crib manufacturers have agreed to stop making them." The Tribune said that despite the fact that parents will complain about the inconvenience of the new cribs, that the drop-sided cribs were dangerous.

"We heartily supported congressional action last year that gave the commission more money and more authority to ferret out and block unsafe products," the Tribune said. "In this case, the manufacturers moved before the agency did, and that's good to see."
