Simplicity Drop Side Cribs Recalled

Date:
July 2, 2009
Category:
Cribs
Company/Brand:
Simplicity Inc. and SFCA Inc.
The Danger:
The crib's plastic hardware can break or deform, causing the drop side to detach. When the drop side detaches, it creates space between the drop side and the crib mattress. Infants and toddlers can roll into this space and become entrapped which can lead to suffocation.
Description:
This recall involves about 400,000 drop side cribs with a different or "newer" style of plastic hardware from those cribs recalled in September 2007. This newer style of Simplicity hardware can be identified by a flexible plastic tab at the top of the lower tracks. The recalled model numbers include but may not be limited to: 8050, 8325, 8620, 8745, 8748, 8755, 8756, 8765, 8778, 8810, and 8994, 8995, and 8996.
Sold At:
Department stores, children's stores, and mass merchandisers nationwide from January 2005 through June 2009 for between $150 and $300.
What To Do:
Immediately stop using the recalled cribs and find an alternative, safe sleeping environment for your baby; return the crib to the store for a refund, replacement or store credit.
