CPSC Announces 2 Big Crib Recalls

May 2, 2010  ·  By HM&M


The Consumer Product Safety Commission is “recalling thousands of Simplicity and Graco cribs, warning that babies could suffocate or strangle in them.” (Washington AP, 4/29).

The agency says the Simplicity recall has been implicated by at least one death, and involves thousands of cribs, though many may have been previously recalled for other defects. The Graco recall affects over 200,000 dropside cribs.
