More Drop-Side Cribs Recalled for Safety Risk

This is getting ridiculous. At this point I wouldn’t recommend buying any drop-side crib. It seems every one of them will eventually be recalled for safety reasons. This is the latest problem, as reported by the Associated Press:

About 170,000 drop-side cribs are being recalled after six infants were injured.

The cribs recalled were manufactured in Italy, Latvia, Brazil, China and Vietnam and distributed nationwide between January 2000 and March 2010 under the names C&T International, Sorelle and Golden Baby.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says faulty hardware can cause the cribs’ drop sides to partially or fully detach. If they partially detach, it creates a space between the side and the mattress where a child can be trapped and strangled. If they fully detach, the child can fall out of the crib.

Additionally, the cribs’ slats can detach, also allowing children to be trapped or fall.

There have been 104 reports of detached drop sides and slats on these cribs, including 11 reports of infants being trapped or falling. Of these, six infants suffered bruises and cuts. Consumers wanting more information should call 877-791-9398.

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...)
