Another huge crib recall has been issued, this time affecting more than 2 million models by seven manufacturers, according to multiple news reports.
The AP reports that most of the cribs were "drop-sides," with side railings that can be moved downward. The recall was issued because of suffocation and strangulation risks. There have been no deaths connected with the cribs.
According to the AP, the recalled cribs include:
- "50,000 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.
As WalletPop noted, hundreds of thousands of cribs were recalled by the Gracco and Simplicity brands in April. The cribs were also "drop-side" format, which may be push regulators to issue a larger ban.
