Another Massive Crib Recall Today. June 24th, 2010
Another Massive Crib Recall. Please Take Caution!
It’s no real surprise to me, that millions more, drop side cribs have been recalled today. I believe they are all dangerous, and should be banned as a whole, and it looks like things may be heading in that direction, as more and more injury reports of children hurt, and entraped, by their own safe haven (their little beds), occur.
These are some of the cribs that have now been recalled. Please check the make and model and compare against your own crib. If you own one of these cribs, please contact the manufacturer immediately, and stop using the crib!
The recalls involved about:
750,000 Jenny Lind drop-side cribs distributed by Evenflo Inc.
747,000 Delta drop-side cribs. Delta is also urging parents to check all fixed and drop-side cribs that use wooden stabilizer bars to support the mattress. The company says the bars can be installed upside down, causing the mattress platform to collapse. CPSC spokesman Scott Wolfson said Delta “was not cooperative with providing the full number of units involved in the mattress support assembly problem.”
306,000 Bonavita, Babi Italia and ISSI drop-side cribs manufactured by LaJobi Inc.
130,000 Jardine drop-side cribs imported by Toys R Us.
156,000 Million Dollar Baby drop-side cribs.
50,000 Simmons drop-side cribs.
40,000 to 50,000 Child Craft brand stationary-side cribs and an unknown number of Child Craft brand drop-sides. Child Craft ceased operations last summer and sold its name to Foundations Worldwide Inc., which did not manufacture or sell any of the recalled cribs but will offer rebates for some of them.
With Thursday’s recall, 9 million drop-side cribs have been recalled in the past five years. Drop-sides have been blamed in the deaths of at least 32 infants and toddlers since 2000. The cribs are suspected in another 14 infant fatalities during that time.
Take caution please. Let’s keep our children safe and sound!
