ANOTHER Baby Crib Recall

Posted April 29, 2010 12:41 p.m. EDT

The Consumer Product Safety Commission just announced ANOTHER major recall of baby cribs. The recall involves hundreds of thousands of cribs by Simplicity and Graco. The Simplicity recall was prompted by a potential problem for strangulation or suffocation because the mattress can collapse. It happened to at least one child, and the CPSC is aware of at least 13 other incidents. The Graco recall involves a problem with hardware failures on the drop sides-- a child can become entrapped or even suffocate. At least 99 incidents are reported. These recalls are just the latest in a STRING of recalls involving cribs. For more on all of the recalls and pictures of the cribs involved go to the following links:
