The CPSC has announced a recall of 22,000 full-size and portable drop-side cribs imported by Dream on Me. These drop side cribs are being recalled because they can break, causing the drop side to fall unexpectedly, trapping and potentially suffocating an infant. There have been 69 reports of these cribs being defective.
Last year, over 2 million drop side cribs were recalled because of the risk of infants suffocating while being stuck between the railing and the crib. That recall includes models by Bona Vita, Babi Italia, Child Craft, Delta Enterprise, Evenflo, Jardine, ISSI, Million Dollar Baby and Simmons brands.
Frustrating that we can’t seem to make safe cribs for our children. Real frustrating.
Dream on Me makes a real production about the recall when you go to its website. No, wait. I just went to the home page. No mention of it there. (Update: either I missed it the first time or they just changed it. Either way, try to find it. They are not exactly putting it out there.)
