Drop-Side Crib Recall Returns

An important story for parents of young children, more than 2 million brand-name cribs have been recalled amid concerns that babies can become trapped and strangle or suffocate in the cribs.

The majority of the cribs in the recall are called drop-side cribs, which have been in the headlines before.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall. They say the side rail that moves up and down can partially detach from the crib and create a gap that can trap babies' heads.

Although no deaths have been linked to these cribs, there have been at least 16 cases of infants being trapped, and one child was found unconscious.

The CPSC says consumers should contact the manufacturers directly to obtain a repair kit to immobilize the side rail.

The crib manufacturers involved include Delta, Evenflo, Jardine, Child Craft, Lajobi, Million Dollar Baby and Simmons. For more information visit cpsc.gov.
