Crib Recall Alert

It’s time to do a crib check. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced two new crib recalls today. If you have either of the following cribs, stop using them immediately and find a safe place for your baby to sleep.

Graco-branded drop-side cribs manufactured by LaJobi: 217,000 cribs were recalled because the hardware can break, allowing the drop-side to detach or fail to lock. When this happens, a hazardous gap is created between the drop-side and the crib mattress, into which a child can get wedged and suffocate or become strangled. The child can also fall out of the crib. Check the CPSC‘s press release for crib names and model numbers. The cribs were sold from February 2007 to March 2010. Call 888-842-2215 for a free hardware retrofit kit.

Simplicity full-sized cribs with tubular metal mattress support frames: Fixed-side and drop-side cribs (see the CPSC‘s alert for crib names and model numbers) were recalled because the frame can bend or detach and cause part of the mattress to collapse, creating a space in which a child can become entrapped—or the child can roll out of the crib. Both Simplicity and the company that aquired it, SFCA Inc., are no longer in business, so the CPSC doesn’t have information on how many of the cribs were sold and when they were on the market. All Simplicity drop-side cribs were already recalled because of a separate hazard related to the drop-side. Contact the store at which the crib was purchased for a refund, replacement, or store credit.

    Locating the village barn might not have been much of a challenge for my German removal firm, but carting my awkwardly shaped belongings in the narrow staircase in the barn it was! For very long term storage it’s imperative to occupy as little space as you possibly can by stacking items upwards and to keep belonging safe and dry. The next time I shall certainly invest in green, recyclable boxes when moving house again.
