The agency continues to actively investigate various cribs for potential drop-side and other hazards as part of a larger effort to rid the marketplace and homes of unsafe cribs. The CPSC staff is also working on a new mandatory standard to make cribs safer, which is targeted for completion later this year. The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) has also launched a new crib safety initiative. The companies involved in today’s recalls are providing immobilization devices or other remedies as part of JPMA’s crib safety initiative. Consumers can visit JPMA’s website, www.cribsafety.org, for a list of participating manufacturers.
It's important to note that the immobilization devices, which will be available in the next few weeks, are not a solution for cribs with broken or damaged drop-side hardware. If your drop-side hardware is broken, contact the manufacturer for an alternative remedy.
If your crib has been recalled or it has missing, broken or loose parts, find an alternate safe sleep environment intended for a baby. For more information, visit the CPSC's Crib information center.
I heard on the news that it also involves some non-dropside cribs. Is that not true, or are they just not mentioned in your article?
I've got a solution to this. STOP MAKING DROPSIDE CRIBS. Pretty simple. I'm just baffled why anyone would continue to buy these things. Why are they needed in the first place? Is it so difficult to reach over in the crib and pick up your child?
We used a fixed side crib for our infant and I just don't see that these drop-side style of cribs are necessary for any other reason than aesthetics.
In response to Brad’s question, some of the Child Craft cribs mentioned in the recall news are fixed-sided cribs. They can be assembled incorrectly.
they should not STOP making drop down cribs!!! they have kit so you can fit them. also if it out dated it time to get NEW one. if it droken fit it the RIGHT way.
