Death Linked to Defective Cribs

Yesterday, the Associated Press reported that on Thursday of this week the government recalled thousands of baby cribs manufactured by Simplicity and Graco, after warning that babies could suffocate or strangle in them. Apparently the problem with both types of cribs relates to faulty or defective hardware. According to the article, the Consumer Product Safety Commission said the Simplicity crib recall was linked to at least one death and it involved thousands of cribs. The recall involving Simplicity products is for all full-sized cribs with tubular medal mattress or support frames. Allegedly, those frames can bend or detach, causing the mattress to collapse and creating a space where a child can become trapped and suffocate. The Graco branded wood cribs involve a side that moves up and down, which can break or detach, creating a dangerous gap where a child can become trapped and suffocate.
