Drop-Side Cribs Recalled For Safety Risk

CNSPhoto-Recall-SchidtAbout 170,000 drop-side cribs are being recalled after six infants were injured. The cribs recalled were manufactured in Italy, Latvia, Brazil, China and Vietnam and distributed nationwide between January 2000 and March 2010 under the names C&T International, Sorelle and Golden Baby. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says faulty hardware can cause the cribs’ drop sides to partially or fully detach. If they partially detach, it creates a space between the side and the mattress where a child can be trapped and strangled. If they fully detach, the child can fall out of the crib.

Additionally, the cribs’ slats can detach, also allowing children to be trapped or fall.

There have been 104 reports of detached drop sides and slats on these cribs, including 11 reports of infants being trapped or falling. Of these, six infants suffered bruises and cuts. AP

  1. I have said this before and I will say this again every time a recall is announced regarding a drop side crib. DO NOT PURCHASE A DROP SIDE CRIB or any crib with moving parts. It is just TOO risky and things always go wrong. I know its convenient, but for the safety of your child, PLEASE buy a solid, non movable crib

  2. This is so important. Thanks for keeping us informed. Let’s take a break from all those political articles about Hershel, Bob, and chavrusoh tumuls.
