On Friday, 3 U.S. companies announced recalls of more than 40,000 drop-sided cribs. Ethan Allen, Angel Line, and Victory Land Group voluntarily recalled their cribs as the drop-side can detach creating a dangerous gap between the crib and the mattress which can trap or suffocate a child.
Owners of this and other drop-sided cribs are advised to immediately contact the manufacturer for a free repair kit to immobilize the drop-side. Should a fix not be available, some companies are offering a voucher.
In the wake of more than 15 crib recalls in 2010, the CPSC is announcing a campaign promoting safe sleep and and child safety.
