The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), with the cooperation of seven firms, today announced voluntary recalls of more than two million cribs to address drop-side hazards and other hazards that affect the safety of young children. The recalling firms are providing consumers with free repair kits to immobilize the drop sides or other remedies.
The drop-side and fixed-side crib recalls announced today are of units manufactured between 2000 and 2009 by the companies listed below.
- 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.
“Cribs should be the safest place in the home for infants and toddlers,” said CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum. “CPSC is committed to addressing the hazards with cribs and to restoring parents’ confidence that their child will have a safe sleep.”’
If you have a Simplicity or Graco crib, be sure to check it too. Many of those were recalled in April.
