When parents think of the crib that will be their precious bundle of joy’s safe haven, images of powder blue crib bumpers, soothing musical lambs, and soft butter yellow jammies are more often than not their mental picture. But two million cribs made by seven companies have been recalled because they are not the safe haven parents rely on for their little blessings.
While the majority of these recalled cribs have drop-down sides, there are others. Companies include Evenflo, Jenny Lind, Child craft, Million Dollar Baby, LaJobi, and Simmons Juvenile Products, among others.
CBS Healthwatch provides the list of recalled cribs here.
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reports that “the Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) has also launched a new crib safety initiative. The listed manufacturers are providing free drop-side crib immobilization kits to prevent the drop side from detaching, plus replacement hardware and assembly instructions for cribs manufactured by participating firms. These materials are available free to any consumer by request.”
