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.

The problem with both types of cribs “stems from hardware failures in which a piece of the crib collapses or breaks – creating a dangerous gap between the mattress and crib where a baby can suffocate or strangle.” As a personal injury attorney, I strongly encourage all parents to ensure that their cribs are safe for us.
