Thousands of Simplicity and Graco Cribs Recalled

Thousands of Simplicity and Graco cribs have been recalled due to the risk of suffocation or strangulation, and the Simplicity recall has been linked to at least one death, according to the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The problem with both types of cribs stems from hardware failures.  In the case of the Graco-branded LaJobi cribs, the dropside, or the part that moves up and down, can break or detach, creating a dangerous gap between the crib mattress and dropped side.  The CPSC urges parents to immediately stop using the recalled cribs and contact LaJobi at (888) 842-2215 or to receive a free hardware retrofit kit that will immobilize the drop side.

As far as the recaled Simplicity cribs, which includes all full-sized cribs with tubular metal mattress-support frames, the CPSC is urging parents to “stop using these cribs immediately and find an alternative, safe sleeping environment for their baby. Do not attempt to fix these cribs.”
