Industry Group Calls for Ban on Drop-Side Cribs

The Wall Street Journal reports that in the wake of a rash of deaths and injuries of infants in drop-side cribs and the resultant recalls, a coalition of manufacturers is calling for a ban on this type of crib. “Malfunctioning drop-side cribs have been blamed in incidents in which babies were trapped or strangled when the cribs gave way. The proposal was drafted by the crib subcommittee of ASTM International, a voluntary standards-setting group. The group’s crib standards are set with input from a range of industry stakeholders, including product makers and users, testing labs, consumer advocacy groups and government regulators.”

The AP adds that the “Consumer Product Safety Commission said at least three children have died in drop-side cribs in the last 18 months and there have been five recalls involving more than 3 million cribs. Industry officials say the cribs are safe, but they decided to act after the recalls.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
