Update: Looking for this more recent crib recall for Stork Craft Dop-Side Cribs?
Following more than 1-million recalled Simplicity cribs and bassinets from last year, the CPSC today announced the recall of another 400,000 Simplicity Drop Side Cribs because plastic hardware on the crib can break or deform, which could cause the side rails to detach.
At least one infant has already died as a result of the drop side rails detaching, which allowed the infant to become trapped between the rails and the mattress.
The following Simplicity Cribs Have Been Recalled:
Models Numbers 8050, 8325, 8620, 8745, 8748, 8755, 8756, 8765, 8778, 8810, and 8994, 8995, 8996.
The recall may not be limited to these model numbers, however. The CPSC advises consumers to identify the cribs by a flexible plastic tab at the top of the lower tracks. If your Simplicity crib has one of these, it is likely part of this recall.
The CPSC advises parents to stop using these Simplicity cribs immediately. However, Simplicity Inc. went out of business so your only recourse is to return the recalled cribs to the store at which you purchased it.
