Simplicity & Graco Crib Recall
On September 21, 2007, the Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) issued the largest crib recall in U.S. history. The recall was on more than one million Simplicity and Graco cribs that were responsible for the deaths of at least three infants. The CPSC issued the recall because a defect in the cribs’ design allowed consumers to install a drop rail upside down. When this happened, the drop rail could detach from the crib, creating a gap where an infant could become entrapped and suffocate.
The recalled cribs were manufactured in China and sold throughout the US between January 1998 and May 2007. The recall included cribs sold under the Simplicity and Graco names. The recalled Simplicity models include:
- Aspen 3 in 1
- Aspen 4 in 1
- Crib N Changer Combo
- Pooh 4 in 1
The recall also involved the following Simplicity cribs that used the Graco logo:
- Aspen 3 in 1
- Ultra 3 in 1
- Ultra 4 in1
- Ultra 5 in 1
The recalled cribs have one of the following model numbers, which can be found on the envelope attached to the mattress support and on the label attached to the headboard:
Jardine Crib Recall
On June 28, 2008, the CPSC announced another crib recall. This time, the crib recall involves 28 models of Jardine cribs. The recalled models come in many colors, finishes and styles and were sold at Toys “R” Us, Babies “R” Us, Kids World, Geoffrey Stores, and on-line at babiesrus.com from 2002 until May 2008. The recalled cribs, which were made in China and Vietnam, sold for between $150 and $300.
To date, there have been 42 reported incidents of injuries involving recalled Jardine cribs, according to the CPSC. Four children have been trapped in the opening created by a broken slat or spindle, and two of the children suffered cuts and bruises. The CPSC is continuing to investigate reports of injuries and incidents relating to the recalled cribs. Consumers who own a recalled Jardine crib are being offered vouchers for a new crib.
The Jardine crib recall includes the following model numbers:
