RECALL: More Simplicity Cribs

Recalled crib - CPSC If that headline looks familiar, it should. It’s the latest in a very long line of crib recalls involving the now defunct Simplicity company. So far, more than 2.3 million of these things have been recalled. The walls fall off or the structure collapses. Now the federal Consumer Product Safety Commission has recalled all Simplicity full-size cribs with tubular metal mattress-support frames. The frames can bend, causing the mattress to collapse, taking your baby with it. A Massachusetts 1-year-old suffocated after becoming wedged in the folded mattress. Another child hurt hit head after he fell out through the bottom of the crib. And at least 12 other cribs have collapsed this way. The CPSC is not specifying how many cribs this recall involves because there are no longer any sales records for this wretched crib company. This particular structural collapse problem is not fixable, so if you’ve got one of these cribs, contact the store where you purchased it for a refund.
