Crib Recall is a Re-recall

There is a recall of more than 985,000 drop-side cribs with “crib trigger lock and safety peg” hardware. This is an odd recall in that this crib was already recalled in 2008. Why the re-recall?
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission and Delta Enterprise have word of a second death from these cribs. What’s bizarre is the death was in 2009. 2009? There has to be a back story here. Another child got trapped and suffocated when the drop side of the crib detached.

This sounds like a no doubt about it product defect case. The company admits that missing safety pegs can cause the crib’s drop-side rail to separate from the track, creating a gap where a baby can get lodged and suffocate.

The problem is people pass down and reuse cribs. No one really knows who the manufacturer is. There has to be a better way to track and notify people about this stuff. But, honestly, I’ll admit I don’t know what that is.

The recall involves the following crib models:

4320, 4340; 4500, 4520, 4530, 4532, 4540, 4542, 4550, 4551, 4580; 4600, 4620, 4624 – production dates 01/06 thru 11/07, 4640, 4660, 4720, 4735, 4742, 4750 – production dates 01/95 thru 12/00; 4760, 4770, 4780, 4790; 4820, 4840, 4850, 4860, 4880, 4890, 4892; and
4900, 4910, 4920, 4925-2, 4925-6, 4930, 4940, 4943, 4944, 4947, 4948, 4949, 4950, 4958, 4963, 4968, 4969, 4980.
