The US consumer product safety commission has issued a crib product recall on several popular models of drop-side cribs due to suffocation, fall and entrapment hazards. The recall began as a Simplicity crib recall but has been expanded to include several other models. Most recently, the US CPSC has issued a Pottery Barn crib recall. The other types of cribs recalled, manufactured in 2008 and 2009, include:

  • Simmons Juvenile Products Inc. 
  • Child Craft 
  • Delta Enterprise Corp. 
  • Evenflo 
  • Jardine Enterprises 
  • LaJobi (including Bonavita, Babi Italia, and ISSI drop side cribs) 
  • Bexco (including Million Dollar Baby, Baby Mod and Da Vinci brand drop side cribs) 

In the last five years, over 8 million drop side cribs have been recalled. Based on these statistics and the recent cribs recalled beginning with the Simplicity crib recall and ending with the Pottery Barn crib recall, the CPSC is in the process of coming with new standards for cribs that will effectively ban drop-side cribs. Because of their construction, the drop sides can detach if hardware breaks, leading to entrapment, suffocation and even death. While the CPSC works on enacting these standards, parents should ensure that their crib model is not one of the cribs recalled and if it is to replace the hardware or purchase a replacement crib. Additionally, when purchasing a crib, it makes the most sense to choose a model with four fixed sides instead of a drop-side crib to avoid being included in additional crib recalls.

Additionally, if you are interested in finding out about the crib manufacturer’s liability for the cribs recalled and the injuries they have caused to children, contact a personal injury attorney in Chicago or visit our products liability page to learn more.
