Million Dollar Baby Drop-Side Cribs Recalled

Date:
June 24, 2010
Category:
Cribs
Company/Brand:
Bexco Enterprises, Inc., d.b.a. Million Dollar Baby
The Danger:
The cribs' drop sides can malfunction, detach, or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop side to fall out of position; this creates a space into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged or entrapped, which can lead to strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear.

What To Do:
