These are the Consumer Protection Safety Commission (CPSC) recalls that have been issued from June 23 – June 29, 2010.

Please note that the CPSC announced this week that, “U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), with the cooperation of seven firms, is announcing 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. Do not attempt to fix these cribs with homemade remedies.”

You can find even more detailed information on all recalled products mentioned below on CPSC.gov.

All information below comes directly from the CPSC website.

1.  Name of Product: Child Craft brand “Crib ‘N’ Double Bed” full size stationary-side cribs with dowel

Hazard: The cribs’ stationary side can be assembled upside-down but still appear to be assembled correctly. If assembled upside-down, the crib side contains a hazardous five-inch gap at the top of the crib. Infants or toddlers can become entrapped in this gap (as depicted in the photo below), which can lead to entrapment, strangulation or other injuries.

Description: All Child Craft brand cribs with the foot top dowel (as shown in the photos below) including, but not limited to, the following models:

Name Model Number(s)
Child Craft convertible cribs F36101

2.  Name of Product: Child Craft brand drop-side cribs

Hazard: The drop-side hardware can fail, causing the drop-side to detach from the crib or fall to the dropped position. When the drop side detaches, even partially, it creates a space in which an infant or toddler can become entrapped and suffocate or strangle. Drop side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age related wear and tear. Additionally, when drop-side hardware fails and/or disengages, an infant or toddler can be injured by falling out of the crib.

Description: This recall involves drop-side Child Craft brand cribs using the style of drop-side hardware shown below. “Child Craft” appears on a label on the crib’s frame and identifies the place of manufacture as Salem, Indiana or New Salisbury, Indiana.

3.  Name of Product: Delta cribs

Drop-Side Hazard: The cribs’ drop sides can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop side to fall out of position, creating a space into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged or entrapped, which can lead to strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear.

Mattress Support Hazard: In addition, the wooden stabilizer bars on some Delta drop-side and fixed-side cribs can be installed upside down, which puts extra stress on the crib and can cause the mattress platform to collapse, creating a gap in which an infant or toddler can become entrapped and posing a risk of strangulation or suffocation.

Description: This recall involves Delta drop-side cribs with three different types of drop-side hardware and Delta cribs with wooden stabilizer bars that support the mattress platform. Consumers should visit www.cribrecallcenter.com for photographs and models of the affected hardware types and instructions on correct assembly of the stabilizer bars.
