A Simplicity and Graco crib recall is effecting hundreds of thousands of consumers. Hardware failures in the structures of cribs in both companies has resulted in 1 death, 1 mild concussion and numerous entrapment and suffocation incidences. All of these recalled cribs should stop being used immediately.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission on Thursday announced a recall of all Simplicity full-size cribs with tubular metal mattress-support frames because the mattress can collapse and pose entrapment, suffocation, strangulation, and fall hazards to infants and toddlers, according to an April 29 CPSC press release. The recall includes both fixed-side and drop-side cribs. The CPSC has received a report of one infant death associated with these cribs.
The Simplicity crib recall does include contact info or repair kits because the company is out of business. CPSC demands consumers do not try to fix these faulty cribs. All Simplicity drop side cribs were recalled previously for similar hardware malfunctions.
The Simplicity crib recall includes Aspen 4-in-1, Chelsea Deluxe 4-in-1 Convertible Sleep System, Graco 4-in-1 Ultra Sleep System, Graco Aspen 3-in1, Simplicity Crib and Changer Combo, Simplicity Ellis Deluxe 4-in-1 Convertible Sleep System and Simplicity Nursery-in-a-Box Convertible Crib.
