Breaking News: Delta Recalls 1.6 Million Cribs
The Consumer Products Safety Commission just announced a voluntary recall by Delta of 1.6 million drop side cribs (sold from January 1995 through September 2007) because an 8-month-old baby became entrapped and suffocated when the drop side of his crib detached. Some of the cribs are missing a safety peg in the base of each leg that can cause the crib locks to detach and create a hazardous gap. Others have all their pegs but they can stop functioning properly. This recall involves a lot of model numbers so to see if your crib is included check the CPSC’s database or Delta’s crib recall site. If your crib is affected, stop using it and order a free repair kit online or by calling 800-816-5304.
