The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is warning consumers about the dangers associated with using 2 million recalled Simplicity drop side cribs. All Simplicity wooden drop side cribs have been recalled.
CPSC has recently learned of an additional death which occurred in September 2009 involving a 7-month-old child from Princeton, Ky., who became entrapped in the crib when a part of the drop side broke.

The plastic hardware can break or deform, causing the drop side to detach. When the drop side detaches, it creates a space between the drop side and the crib mattress. Infants and toddlers roll into this space and become entrapped which can lead to suffocation.

The recalled Simplicity drop side cribs were sold in department stores, childrens stores, and mass merchandisers nationwide from January 2005 through June 2009 for between $150 and $300.

All Simplicity wooden drop side cribs have been recalled, so please check to see if you, or someone you know, have a recalled Simplicity drop side crib. If you do, you should immediately stop using the recalled crib and find an alternative, safe sleep environment for your baby. Consumers should not attempt to fix the crib.
