Another day, another recall and this time it’s crib recall 2010 with over 2 million cribs being recalled in the United States.
The crib recall goes across seven makes, with most of the cribs being drop side models. The recall has been issued as the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), which has identified that affected cribs pose a “suffocation and strangulation” risk.
The recalled cribs were manufactured between 2000 and 2009. The makes of the cribs are:
-Child Craft, (this firm is out of business): Fixed-Side | Drop-Side
– Delta Enterprise Corp., of New York, N.Y.
– Evenflo, of Miamisburg, Ohio
– Jardine Enterprises, of Taipei, Taiwan
– LaJobi, of Cranbury, N.J.
– Million Dollar Baby, of Montebello, Calif.
– Simmons Juvenile Products Inc. (SJP), of New London, Wis.
The manufacturers are providing free drop-side crib immobilization kits to prevent the drop side from detaching, plus replacement hardware and assembly instructions for cribs. These materials are available free to any consumer by request. For more details, visit, www.cribsafety.org.
While there have been no reported deaths so far, the CPSC advises that parents with affected cribs should arrange alternative sleeping arrangements for their children until such time they are able to repair the crib using the immobilization kits.
