Consumer Product Safety Commission Makes a Recall on Cribs

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has recalled all Simplicity full-size cribs with tubular metal mattress-support frames.

According to the CPSC, the crib has a product defect that can cause the mattress to collapse and entrap, suffocate or strangle children in the crib.  The recall includes both fixed-side and drop-side cribs. The CPSC has learned of one infant death associated with the product defect on the crib.

According to a CPSC press release, “CPSC is aware of 13 additional incidents involving the recalled cribs collapsing due to the metal mattress- support frame bending or detaching, including one child entrapment that did not result in injury, and one child who suffered minor cuts to his head when his mattress collapsed and he fell out of the crib.”

CPSC said crib owners should immediately stop using the cribs and find a different, safe sleeping arrangement for children.

The recalled cribs were sold at Wal-Mart, Target, Babies R Us and other stores.  According to the CPSC press release, “Consumers should contact the store where the crib was purchased to receive a refund, replacement crib or store credit.”
