LAWFUEL – The Legal Newswire – The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on Friday called for the voluntary recall of about 1 million Chinese-manufactured cribs following the death of two infants, officials said.
The Simplicity Inc. cribs were sold from January 1998 through May 2007 for $100 to $300. The crib’s design allows consumers to install its so-called drop side (the crib panel that can be lowered) upside down, which can weaken the hardware and cause the drop side to detach. Infants can become trapped in the gap created when the drop side detaches, according to the CPSC.
Consumers should immediately check that their crib made by Simplicity, a family-owned business in Reading, Pa., has the drop side installed right side up
