Cribs by Little Folks or Simmons
Date of recall: February 21, 2001
These 68,600 cribs being recalled were made by Simmons Juvenile Products in 1998. The cribs were
sold under the name “Little Folks”. “Simmons” and the two-digit year it was made are written on a label
attached to the crib’s headboard. It would be written like this: 98-025260. “98” is the year and “025260”
is the model number. All cribs made in 1998 are being recalled. All cribs with the models 025260 and
65060 are being recalled, if manufactured in 1999 or 2000.
The cribs were made of maple or ash and were stained or painted in a dozen different colors like natural,
golden and white. “Simmons” is written on the top rail.
The cribs were sold at discount, mass merchandise (like Wal-mart) and other stores (including Sears)
from January 1998 until December 2000 for between $200 and $600 each.
Reason for the recall:
The bracket hooks used to position the height of the mattress can
break, causing the mattress to collapse. This can trap and
suffocate babies.
There have been more than 800 reports of breaking bracket hooks.
There was incident of a 6-month-old splitting his chin on the side
rail when the mattress dropped.
What should you do?
Stop using the cribs immediately and contact Simmons (800-4212951) to receive replacement brackets by overnight mail.
“Molly” and “Betsy” Cribs by LaJobi
Date of recall: December 18, 2001
Nearly 400 “Molly” and “Betsy” style wooden cribs have been recalled by JaJobi. Both crib styles have
openings on each end panel. The “Molly” style are made with solid wood with openings on both sides.
The “Betsy” style uses wooden slats.
These cribs were sold in juvenile specialty shops between May 2000 and September 2001. The Molly
model was $750 and the Betsy was $650.

(Antique White)
Reason for the recall:
Both cribs have cut-outs in the end panels that could let young children get their heads entrapped,
resulting in strangulation.
In 2003 (after this recall), a one-year-old girl died in Mississippi as the result of getting her
head entrapped in the headboard cutout on the “Betsy” style. These cribs may be found in
thrift stores and second-hand shops. Do not purchase!
The design does not meet CPSC’s standards.
What should you do?
Stop using the cribs immediately.
Contact LaJobi at 888-266-2848 for replacement end panels.
Cribs by Vermont Precision Woodworks
Date of recall: April 25, 2002
About 990 cribs are being recalled by Vermont Precision Woodworks. The recalled models are 7010
Alpine, 7020 Caspian, 7030 Coventry, 7040 Dunmore, and 7070 Haystack. They are solid maple and
available in five different finishes: natural, colonial, white, cherry, and cinnamon. There is a label on the
bottom of the cribs that says “Vermont Precision Woodworks” with the manufacturing date and model
name.
The cribs were made in the USA and sold nationwide from January 2000 through March 2002 for

Reason for the recall:
5
© http://www.the-essential-infant-resource-for-moms.com
Growing into motherhood, one day at a time.
The slats on the cribs can loosen and detach from the drop side rail. This creates a large enough
opening for a child’s head or neck to become entrapped resulting in serious injury or death.
There have been 21 reports of the slats detaching, but no injuries.
What should you do?
Stop using the crib immediately.
Contact Vermont Precision Woodworks (866-869-7974) for free replacement drop side rails.
Cribs by Baby’s Dream Furniture
Date of recall: May 6, 2003
These 4,600 recalled cribs were sold under either the Baby’s
Dream Furniture label or the National Baby Furniture label
in five different models. Those models were “Always Crib,”
“Crib 4 Life,” “Legendary Crib,” “Set 4 Life,” and “Crib-2College.” They were honey, amber or cherry colored.
The model names and manufacturing date are on a label on
the lower inside of the frame. “Made in USA” is also

6

were made between January and August 2001.
In addition, an unknown number of cribs made between 1996 and 2002 may also be faulty.
Reason for the recall:
The three hinges along the fold-down drop gate can crack or break and allow babies to have their
fingers pinched or crushed. There have been 38 reports of cracked or broken hinges.
The cribs being recalled made between 1996 and 2002 may have drop gate trigger latches that are
not correctly aligned to fit securely. A misaligned latch can allow the gate to open if a child leans
on it.
There have been 2 reports injuries to children when the latches didn’t hold. One report involved a
child whose head was bruised after falling to the floor when the latch failed. The other report
involved a crushed finger when the rail unexpectedly moved inward when the parent leaned into
the crib. There were also 5 reports of children falling out of the crib who received no injury.
What should you do?
Stop using the crib immediately.
Contact Baby’s Dream (800-835-2742) to receive a free repair kit for the hinges or latches along with
specific instructions on how to inspect your crib latches.

label. They were distributed through Stanley Furniture Company’s Young America line. They are made

Reason for the recall:
The Amber model crib does not comply with crib safety standards because of a gap between the
side rail and crib mattress support. This is an entrapment hazard for infants.

Sleigh Round Cribs by Song Lin
Date of recall: May 31, 2007
Nearly 180 Sleigh Round Cribs have been recalled by manufacturer Song Lin. The crib measures about
42 inches in diameter and is made of solid wood. It has a mahogany finish. Model #2005 is the model
being recalled. The crib has 4 posts that are about 31 inches high and a portion of the crib can be raised
and lowered. This uniquely designed crib was sold at children’s furniture stores from January 2005
through March 2007 for $600.
Reason for the recall:
The assembly instructions included encouraged consumers to build the crib with the mattress
support in the highest position and do not indicated that the support can be lowered.

What should you do?
If your child is able to sit or stand up in the crib you should lower the mattress support to the
lower setting.
Contact Song Lin at 888-589-0088 for a revised version of assembly instructions and directions
on how to lower the support.

Cribs by Simplicity and Graco
Simplicity appears to no longer conduct day-to-day operations. Repair kits are no longer
available to fix these recalled cribs. Parents and caregivers are advised to dispose of these cribs,
even if it is believed that the hardware and drop side have been installed correctly. All of the
recalled cribs have the potential to pose a danger to young children. See update on July 2nd,
2009.
Date of recall: June 6th, 2007 revised September 24, 2007
Nearly 1 million cribs have been recalled from manufacturer Simplicity due to infant deaths. The
recalled crib models include Aspen 3 in 1, Aspen 4 in 1, Nursery-in-a-Box, Crib N Changer Combo,
Chelsea and Pooh 4 in 1. They also include Simplicity cribs that carry the Graco Logo: Aspen 3 in 1,
Ultra 3 in 1, Ultra 4 in 1, Ultra 5 in 1, Whitney and the Trio.

The older hardware attaching the drop-side of the crib is being recalled. The recalled older hardware has
a flexible tab at the bottom of the lower tracks and the top of the lower tracks are open. Follow the
instructions below.
The newer hardware is not being recalled, but consumers are strongly advised to check the crib’s drop
side to make sure it is assembled right side up and inspect for broken hardware. The newer hardware has
the flexible tab located at the top of the lower track, and a permanent stop at the bottom.
These cribs were manufactured in China and sold in department stores, children’s stores, and mass
merchandisers nationwide from January 1998 through
May 2007 for between $100 and $300 each.
Reason for the recall:
The drop-side of the crib can detach. This can
create a dangerous gap and lead to the
entrapment and suffocation of infants.
Sadly, there have been two infant deaths as a
result of these cribs. A 9-month-old and a 6month-old child. The cribs they used had older
style hardware and the drop-side was installed
upside down.
There have been 7 other infant entrapments and
14

55 other incidents related to these cribs.
The CPSC is also investigating the death of a 1-year old who slept in a newer-style hardware
Simplicity crib where the drop-side was also installed upside down.
What should you do?
First, check your crib to make sure that they drop-side is installed right side up. The slightly
rounded rail with the decorative grove should be installed at the top and the plain rail at the
bottom. The drop-side should be securely attached to the tracks in all four corners. If the dropside is not installed right side up or is loose, stop using the crib immediately.
Second, check to see if your crib is using recalled hardware (see descriptions above)
Consumers with the older-hardware can receive a free repair by calling Simplicity at 888-5939274 or visiting www.simplicityforchildren.com
If you have newer hardware but have installed the drop-side upside down or have broken
hardware, contact Simplicity immediately.

Growing into motherhood, one day at a time.
Reason for the recall:
The cribs could fail to meet a federal safety standard for crib dimensions. When the mattress
support is in the middle setting, the space between the matt ess and the crib could be too wide,
posing an entrapment hazard to infants.
What should you do?
Stop using the crib with the mattress in the middle setting, a justing to the low or high setting.

replacement crib headboard if it is. (888-839-6822)
Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard Cribs
Date of recall: August 5th, 2008
The recall includes the following wooden full-size cribs:
"Enchantment" (model #210), "Hush a Bye" (model #215),
"Once upon a time" (model #320) and "Rock a bye"
(model #1900-350).
Only date codes from 0306 through 0308 are included in
this recall. "Mother Hubbard's Cupboards", the model
number and date code are printed on a label located on the
bottom inside of the right side.
The cribs were sold at juvenile product stores from March,
2006 through March 2008 for between $500 and $650
each.
Reason for the recall:
The cribs failed to meet federal safety standards. The distance between the mattress support
bracket in the lowest position and the top of the side rail in the highest position is less than the
required 25 inches, creating a fall hazard.
What should you do?
Stop using the cribs immediately.

Davenport Cribs by Baby Appleseed
Date of recall: August 5th, 2008
22
© http://www.the-essential-infant-resource-for-moms.com
Growing into motherhood, one day at a time.
The recall includes Davenport crib models that begin with the model numbers 273-xxxx-xxxx and have
manufacture dates on or before August 2007 printed on a label located on the right side of the lower inner
panel of the crib.
The recalled cribs have two mattress support systems-a metal one and a wooden one. Newer Davenport
cribs with model numbers beginning with 244-xxxxxxxx that have one mattress support are not included in
the recall. The cribs were sold from December 2006
until October 2007 for between $600 and $800 each.
Reason for the recall:
The cribs fail the federal safety guidelines.
They have a two mattress support system. The
second mattress support, used for the lowest
position, does not meet the full 26 inch height
requirement, allowing children to crawl over the
railing and possibly fall.
What should you do?
Stop using the crib in the third lowest position, which uses the wooden mattress support. You can
continue to use the crib in the other two positions.

Drop-Side Cribs by Simplicity
Date of recall: August 5th, 2008
This recall of drop-side cribs involves a different set of Simplicity cribs than those recalled in September,
2007. The newly recalled model numbers are 8620, 8745, 8748, 8755, 8756, 8778, 8810, and 8994.
These recalled cribs also have a date code, which can be found on a label on the headboard under the
mattress support. Look for those codes that end in 05DH,
05GB, 06DH, 06GB, 07DH, or 07GB. (Example: 1806 DH
or 0507 GB – bold to emphasize).
The recalled model names are Aspen and Crib N Changer
Combo, Gabrielle, Camille, Providence, Shenandoah. Only
the brand name “Simplicity” can be seen on the label on the
headboard.
The cribs were sold at department stores, children stores, and
mass merchandisers nationwide from January 2005 through
August 2008 for between $150 and $300.
Reason for the recall:
Due to sizing problems with the crib’s hardware, the
23

drop side can come off its tracks. When the drop side
detaches (or partially detaches) it leaves a dangerous gap
that could lead to entrapment and strangulation.
There have been at least 9 incidents where the drop side
detached. There have been no injuries.
What should you do?
These cribs are not being recalled by Simplicity, but by the
Consumer Product Safety Commission and the stores
below.

alternative instead.

Convertible Cribs by PlayKids
Date of the recall: October 16, 2008
These convertible cribs/bassinets have model number PLK-909. The phrase “Playkids U.S.A.”
can be found on the packaging and on a label sewn into the side of the crib. The model number
is on the packaging. These cribs have a drop side rail, a stationary side rail, a canopy assembly,
and a bassinet. The sides of the convertible crib, the mattress support, the bassinet, the canopy,
and the bed skirt, are all covered in fabric and mesh. The fabric and the mesh come in a variety
of colors and patterns.
These cribs were sold in juvenile product retailers in New York from March 2007 through
September 2008 for about $100.
Reason for the recall:
The sides of the crib are made of mesh that expands, creating a gap between the mattress
and the side through which an infant can slip.
A 5-month old child died on August 31, 2008 in Brooklyn NY after becoming entrapped
between the mattress and drop side rail of the convertible crib and suffocating.
What should you do?
Stop using the crib immediately

Delta Drop Side Cribs

The model number, country of origin and manufacture date are located at the top of the mattress support
board. The recalled cribs have Delta’s name and address on the mattress support boards and Delta’s logo
on the teether rail. The cribs were sold at major retailers nationwide from January 2000 through January
2007 from between $33 and $200. Cribs currently being sold are not being recalled.
Reason for the recall:
The crib’s drop side can detach when the
spring peg is not engaged, which can
create an entrapment and suffocation risk
to infants.
If the spring pegs in the base of the leg of
the crib are pushed back into the lower
track, the pegs can become
nonfunctional. This can cause the drop
side to detach.
An 8-month-old suffocated when the
drop side of his crib detached. There was
also a child entrapment and one incident
where the drop side detached due to an
disengaged spring peg.
What should you do?
Stop using the crib.

Reason for the recall:
When the safety pegs in the base of each leg are
missing from the lower track, the crib locks can
disengage and detach if lowered below the peg
hole, creating a dangerous gap. This gap can
become a entrapment hazard.
There has been one death due to missing safety
pegs. There have been two entrapments and nine
disengagement incidents in cribs where the pegs
were missing.
What should you do?
Stop using the crib immediately and find a safe
alternative sleeping solution.

Bonavita “Cabana” Drop Side Cribs by LaJobi
Date of the recall: June 9th, 2009
This particular recall are for “Cabana” wooden drop
side cribs with metal mattress supports. They were
made between January 2006 and November 2008 and
have production dates between 01 JAN 2006 and 31
OCT 2008.
The model name, color, product order (PO) number,
production date, and other information is printed on a
label located on the inside bottom rail of the
headboard or footboard.
The cribs were made with three finishes: antique
white, classic cherry, and montego brown. Cribs with
other production dates are not being recalled.
The cribs were sold at USA Baby, Beautiful
Beginnings, Buy Buy Baby, and other specialty stores
nationwide from January 2006 through May 2009 for
around $450.
Reason for the recall:
The wooden crib slats can detach or break,
creating a gap that can entrap or suffocate an
infant.
There have been 16 reported incidents of crib
slats failing. 10 of these involved slats falling
off, and 6 were reports of the slats breaking.
No injuries have been reported.
What should you do?
Stop using the “Cabana” crib immediately and
find a safer sleeping location for your infant.
Contact LaJobi (866-688-9009) for replacement side rails.
Bonavita “Hudson” and Babi Italia “Pinehurst” Cribs by LaJobi
Date of the recall: June 9th, 2009
These cribs are wooden with a metal mattress support. They have drop sides and were sold in many
different finishes, like cherry, espresso, natural, and white. This recall involves those Hudson and
Pinehurst cribs that have production dates between December 2006 and August 2007.
35

Growing into motherhood, one day at a time.
The production date, product order (PO) number, item number, and color are
printed on a label that can be found attached to the footboard or headboard.
The Babi Italia “Pinehurst” crib was sold exclusively at Babies “R” Us. The
Bonavita “Hudson” cribs were sold at Baby Basics, Beautiful Beginnings,
and Buy Buy Baby (among others) for about $300. The cribs were sold from
December 2006 through December 2007. About 2,900 cribs are being
recalled. The recall does not involve LaJobi cribs with straight pins on the
headboard or footboard, or those cribs that do not have drop sides.
Spring Pin
Reason for the recall:
The lower spring pins on the footboard and headboard can pop out of the tracks located on the
drop side, causing the drop side to detach. When this happens, it creates a dangerous gap
between the side and the mattress that a baby could get entrapped and suffocate.
There have been a total of 33 reports of this happening.
Two children were entrapped, and one fell out of the crib altogether. Both were freed by
caregivers. One child was bruised.
What should you do?
Immediately stop using the cribs and find a safer sleeping area for your baby.

from those cribs that were originally recalled on September 24, 2007. The newer hardware can be
identified by a flexible plastic tab at the top of the lower tracks.

Drop-Side Cribs by Stork Craft (sold under Fisher Price)
Date of recall: November 23rd, 2009
Nearly 2.1 million cribs Stork Craft cribs have been recalled. Of these, 147,000 were sold under the
brand name of Fisher Price. The recall does not involve Stork Craft cribs that do not have a drop-side. It
also does not include any cribs with metal rod drop-side hardware. It involves only those cribs with a
plastic trigger and one-hand-system drop-side hardware.

Growing into motherhood, one day at a time.
The recalled Stork Craft cribs have
manufacturing and distribution dates
between January 1993 and October 2009.
The Stork Craft cribs sold under Fisher
Price were made between October 1997 and
December 2004. The Fisher Price cribs
were first sold in the US in July 1998 and in
Canada in September 1998.
They come in a wide variety of styles and
finishes. The manufacture date, model
number, crib name, country of origin, and
the firm’s name, address and contact
information can be found on the assembly
instruction sheet attached to the mattress
support board.
The firm’s insignia, “storkcraft baby” or
“storkling” is inscribed on the drop-side
teething rail of some of the cribs.
Those Stork Craft cribs sold under the
Fisher Price label contain the Fisher Price
logo on the teething rail, in the
manufacturer’s instructions, and on the
assembly instruction sheet attached the
mattress support board.
You can also find the Fisher Price logo on the end panels of the Twinkle-Twinkle and Crystal crib
models.
The cribs were sold at major retailers in the US and Canada including: BJ’s Wholesale Club, J.C. Penny,
Kmart, Meijer, Sears, USA Baby, and Wal-Mart. They were also sold online at Amazon.com,
Babiesrus.com, Costco.com, Target.com, and Walmart.com. They were sold from January 1993 through
October 2009 for between $100 and $400.
Reason for the recall:
The plastic hardware on the drop-side can break, deform, or parts can become missing.
The drop-side can be installed upside-down by accident, which can result in broken or disengaged
plastic parts.
All these problems can cause the drop-side to detach in one or more corners, creating a space in
between the rail and the mattress. The bodies of infants and toddlers can become entrapped in the
space and lead to suffocation. Complete detachment of the drop-side can lead to falls.
There have been 110 reports of drop-side detachment. 67 of these were in the US, 43 in Canada.
Of these, 15 involved entrapments (12 in US, 3 in Canada).
Four of these entrapments resulted in suffocation and death: a 7-month old in New York, a 7month old in Louisiana, a 6-month old in West Virginia, and a 9-month old in New York.
There were also 20 incidents of falls from the cribs (12 in US, 8 in Canada), where injuries
ranged from concussion to bumps and bruises.

The cribs involved in these accidents had plastic drop-side hardware that had broken, missing,
deformed claws, connectors, tracks, or flexible tab stops; loose or missing metal spring clips;
stripped screws; and/or drop sides installed upside-down.
What should you do?
Immediately stop using these cribs and wait for the free repair kit. Do not attempt to repair
without the repair kit.
Find a safe alternative sleeping environment for the child.
Contact Stork Craft (877-274-0277) for a free repair kit that will convert the drop-side on these
cribs to a fixed side.

Reason for the recall:
The drop side hardware can fail, causing the drop side to detach. This creates a small gap
between the side and the mattress, large enough for an infant or toddler to become entrapped and
suffocate.
There has been one report of the death of a 6-month-old child from Cedar Rapids, Iowa who
became entrapped and strangled in a crib after the drop side hardware broke. The crib continued
to be used after the parents attempted to fix the hardware themselves.
There have been 31 drop side incidents. In six of these, children became entrapped. Three
children resulted in bruises.
There has also been 36 incidents of slat breakage, including 7 with reports of bruising or
scratches.
What should you do?
Immediately stop using these cribs, and place your infant in a different safe sleeping situation.

Generation 2 Worldwide and “ChildESIGNS” Drop Side Crib Brands
Date of recall: February 9th, 2010
Manufacturer Generation 2 went out of business in 2005, so we have only limited information about these
deadly cribs. Some of the known model numbers are: 10-110X, 10-210X, 21-110X, 20-710X, 64-315X,
26-110X, 90-257X, 20-810X, 46-715X, 64-311X, 74-315X, 21-815X, 21-810X, 20815X, 308154 and
54915. (The “X” denotes where an additional and varying number may appear at the end of the model
number.) However, all Generation 2 Worldwide and “ChildESIGNS” drop side cribs are included in this
recall, including those with other model numbers.
The phrase “Generation 2 Worldwide” appears on a label fixed to the crib’s headboard or footboard.
Some cribs have a manufacture location listed as Dothan, Ala. Others list China. The name
“ChildESIGNS” can be seen on the teething rail of some of the cribs.
These cribs were sold at numerous local furniture and retail stores like Buy Buy Baby, Kmart, and
Walmart stores for between $60 and $160.
Reason for the recall:
43
© http://www.the-essential-infant-resource-for-moms.com
Growing into motherhood, one day at a time.
The crib’s plastic hardware can break, creating a gap between the drop side of the crib and the
mattress. A child can be entrapped in this gap and suffocate.
There have been 3 incidents where an infant suffocated when they became entrapped between
the crib mattress and the drop side.
o In July 2007, an 8-month-old from Newark, OH suffocated when he became entrapped
between the drop side and crib mattress. The drop side had detached when the plastic
stop tab on the lower rack broke.
o In October 2003, an 8-month-old child from Richmond, IN suffocated when he became
entrapped. The plastic hardware on the drop side was broken, allowing the drop side to
detach from the headboard in one corner.
o In September 2002, a 6-month-old from Staunton, VA suffocated when he became
entrapped. The lower drop side track was missing two screws, allowing it to pull away
from the headboard.
There have also been 20 other reports of drop side incidents. 12 of these involved the drop side
detaching in a corner of the crib. In 2 of these a child became entrapped. One of the children
suffered bruising from the entrapment. There are 5 reports of children falling out of cribs due to
drop side detachment. One child suffered a broken arm as a result of the fall.
There have been 8 reports of mattress support detachment in these cribs as well. Due to the space
created by the supports coming off, three
children became entrapped between the crib
frame and the mattress and four children crawled
out of the crib. There was one report of cuts and
bruises.
What should you do?
Call your place of purchase for a remedy.
If you have a problem obtaining a remedy from
your place of purchase, contact the CPSC at 800638-2772.

Simplicity Brand Cribs
Date of recall: April 29th, 2010
The CPSC is recalling all Simplicity full-size cribs with
tubular metal mattress support frames. This recall
includes fixed side AND drop-side cribs. These cribs are
flawed and extremely dangerous. Do not attempt to fix
these cribs.
The phrases “Simplicity” or “Simplicity for Children” is
printed on a label on the crib’s mattress-support frame
and/or the crib’s end panels. They were sold at Walmart,
Target, Babies R Us, and other stores for between $150
an $300.
Reason for the recall:
The crib’s tubular metal mattress-support frame
can bend or detach and cause part of the mattress
to collapse, creating a space where an infant or
toddler could become wedged and suffocate.
There was one report of a 1-year-old boy from Attleboro, MA who suffocated when he became
entrapped between the crib mattress and the crib frame in April 2008.
There have been 13 additional incidents involving the recalled cribs collapsing due to the metal
support frame bending or detaching, including 1 child entrapment that did not result in injury, and
1 child who suffered minor cuts to his head when his mattress collapsed and he fell out of the
crib.
What should you do?
Stop using these cribs immediately.
Find a safe alternative sleeping place for your child.
Contact the store where purchased for a refund, replacement, or store credit.
Simplicity is no longer in business and cannot be reached for comment.

“Crib N Double Bed” Cribs by Child Craft
Date of recall: June 24th, 2010
All Child Craft cribs with the foot top
dowel (which you can see in the photo
below) are being recalled. This includes
(but isn’t limited to) the model number
F36101.
The phrase “Child Craft” can be found
on a label on the crib’s frame and
identifies it’s manufacturing location as
Salem, Indiana or New Salisbury,
Indiana. These cribs were made by
Child Craft Industries, a company no
longer in business.
The cribs were sold at Babies R Us and
other stores from January 1998 and June 2009 for between $600 and $650.
Reason for the recall:
The crib’s stationary side can be accidently assembled upside-down, and appear to have been
assembled correctly. If assembled upside-down, the crib side contains a hazardous five-inch gap
at the top of the crib. This gap is an entrapment hazard.
There have been 4 reports of children becoming entrapped between the dowel and the crib’s
stationary front side. In two of those reports, the child was trapped by his/her head and was in
danger of being strangled. In the other two reports, the child was trapped by his/her arm.
This hazard can occur on the front and back sides of the crib.
What should you do?
53
© http://www.the-essential-infant-resource-for-moms.com
Growing into motherhood, one day at a time.
Examine your crib immediately to determine
whether it was assembled correctly. To do
this…
o
Measure the gap between the front and
back sides of the crib and the dowel
that runs parallel to the sides.
o
The gap should be no more than 2 and
3/8 inches (see photos below). If the
gap is greater than this, the side has
been installed upside-down and needs
to be re-assembled.
o
Another way to see if the side is
upside down is to look for a barrel nut
(see photo of incorrect assembly).
o
The nut should be at the bottom of the
side, not the top.
Owners of these cribs are to call Foundations Worldwide at 866-614-0557 to obtain instructions
and decals to affix to the stationary sides of the crib to make sure the crib is assembled correctly
in the future.
More information can be made by calling Foundations above or visiting their website at
www.cribsafetyinfo.com

Drop-Side Cribs by Child Craft
Date of recall: June 24th, 2010
This crib recall involves the drop-side cribs manufactured by Child Craft.
The phrase “Child Craft” can be found on a label located on the crib’s
frame and identifies the place of manufacture as Salem, Indiana or New
Salisbury, Indiana.
This recall is for all drop-side cribs with the hardware pictured below and
made between 2000 and 2009.
The affected model numbers
are…F10151, F10171, F10181, F10281, F13311, F13761, F16001, F16011, F16131, F16661, F17001,

The cribs were sold at Babies R Us, Sears, Burlington Coat Factory, Target, and other stores nationwide
between January 2000 and July 2009.
Reason for the recall:
The drop-side hardware can fail, causing the drop-side to detach from the crib or fall to the
dropped position. Either situation will create a situation where an infant or toddler could become
entrapped and suffocate.
There have been 7 reports of the drop-side failing. In one of those reports, the child became
entangled in the gap created. In another incident, a child fell out of the crib and suffered bruises
on his head when the drop side disengaged.
What should you do?
Stop using these cribs immediately and find a safe sleeping place for your child.
Do not attempt to fix these cribs.
Although Foundations Worldwide did not manufacture or sell these recalled cribs (Child Craft
Inc is out of business), they have agreed to provide Child Craft Owners with a rebate towards the
purchase of a new fixed-sided Child Craft brand crib manufactured by Foundations Worldwide.
Contact Foundations Worldwide at 866-614-0557 to request this rebate.

Cribs by Delta
Date of recall: June 24th, 2010
The recalled drop-side cribs by delta were sold with three different types of drop-side hardware. This
recall also involves Delta cribs with wooden stabilizer bars that support the mattress platform.
The cribs were sold at retail stores nationwide and on-line from January 2000 through May 2009 for
between $100 and $300.
For a complete list of affected models, extra photographs, models, and videos on correcting the assembly,
visit www.cribrecallcenter.com and click on “Delta Recall” for June 24th, 2010.
Reason for the recall:
These cribs are being recalled for two separate reasons:
The drop-sides can malfunction, detach, or fail and allow the drop-side to come out of position
and creating a dangerous gap children can become entrapped and suffocated in.
There have been 57 reports of the drop-sides malfunctioning and detaching,
resulting in 3 entrapments, which include 2 incidents of bruising and one where a
child fell out of the cirb.
The wooden stabilizer bar on some of these cribs (and some fixed-side Delta Cribs) can be
installed upside down, which puts added stress on the crib and can cause the mattress platform to
collapse, creating an entrapment gap.
There have been 19 reports where the stabilizer bars were installed upside down.
10 of these incidents involved the mattress platform collapsing. Two children
were entrapped but freed without injury, and one sustained scratches.
What should you do?
For the drop-side issue, stop using immediately and contact Delta (877-342-3418) to receive a
free repair kit that will immobilize the drop side.
For the mattress stabilizer bar issue, inspect the crib to make sure the bar has been installed
correctly, and inspect the joints of the crib for any damage. The videos at
www.cribrecallcenter.com (click on Delta 6/24/10 recall) may be helpful in this. If the bar has
been installed upside down, stop using immediately and contact Delta (877-342-3418) for
information on how to correctly install the bar

Reason for the recall:
The drop-sides can malfunction, creating an entrapment gap and a fall hazard.
There have been 31 reports of the drop sides detaching.
o One involved the entrapment of a 7-month-old boy. He sustained bumps and bruises to
his head.
o Nine children fell out of the crib when the drop-side detached, unlocked, or fell off.
Seven of those children sustained minor injuries. 14 other incidents involved no injuries.
o There have also been 2 reports of children who became entrapped when the mattress
support detached in one corner of cribs made between 2000 and 2004.
What should you do?
Immediately stop using these cribs.
Contact Evenflo (800-356-2229) to receive a free repair kit that will immobilize the drop side.

“Prescott” Fixed-Sided Cribs by Sorelle
Date of recall: September 14th, 2010
These are full sized fixed-sided cribs that were sold
in an oak finish as 3-in-1 or 4-in-1 convertible cribs.
The phrase “Sorelle Furniture” along with the
company’s address , crib’s model number, and
manufacture code are printed on a label attached to
the headboard or footboard.
This specific recall involves only the Sorelle
“Prescott” cribs sold online at AlbeeBaby.com
between July 2009 and October 2009 for between
$180 and $210.
Reason for the recall:
These cribs are re-labeled fixed-sided Simplicity cribs that were recalled in April 2010 due to
faulty tubular metal mattress-support frames. The frames can bend or detach, causing part of the
mattress to drop. That causes a space to form between the mattress and the crib where an infant
could become entrapped and suffocate.
In the April 2010 recall, a 1-year-old child tragically suffocated due to this flaw. There have been
29 other reports involving these Simplicity cribs
There was one report of a consumer who, in April 2010 removed the Sorelle Prescott label from
the crib and found a Simplicity crib label underneath. (The crib was purchased in July of 2009,
before the recall occurred.)
What should you do?
Immediately stop using the recalled cribs and find a safe alternative sleeping place for your child.
Contact Albee Baby at 877-692-5233 for a replacement crib, store credit, or refund.
The original manufacturer, Simplicity, is no longer in business.

The cribs were sold through JC Penny printed catalogs and online
at JCPenny.com from March 2003 through April 2007 for about
$200.
Reason for the recall:
The drop-side hardware can break or fall off, allowing the
side to detach. This creates a fall and entrapment hazard.
Other cribs manufactured by Jardine were recalled for
repair on June 24, 2010.
There have been 2 reports of injuries involving these
cribs.
In one incident, the crib had been misassembled, the plastic broke, and the drop-side rail fell
unexpectedly.
In the second incident, hardware failure caused the rail to detach.
There have been no injuries.
What should you do?
Immediately stop using the cribs and find a safe alternative sleeping location for your infant.
Obtain a free repair kit to immobilize the drop-side rail by calling Jardine at 800-295-1980.
