Crib Safety: Changes in Store for Parents | DC Metro Area Personal Injury Law Blog

5 stars

Posted by Patrick M. Regan

Parents shopping for baby cribs are going to notice some significant changes in the types of cribs offered for sale. Toys “R” Us has recently announced that it will stop selling drop down cribs because of a concern for the safety of infants. In a blog on the Wall Street Journal’s (4/22) website, Rachel Silverman wrote, “Concerns about the safety of popular crib designs have led to 21 recalls of 4.2 million cribs over the past two years because of hazardous defects” and the “products involved in the recalls have been linked to at least five infant deaths and 16 cases in which babies were trapped by parts of a crib, said the Consumer Product Safety Commission.”

The WSJ website also noted “Products involved in the recalls have been linked to at least five infant deaths and 16 cases in which babies were trapped by parts of a crib, said the Consumer Product Safety Commission. Spring pegs have malfunctioned, metal locking pins have popped off, and wooden slats have broken, creating hazardous gaps that have entrapped and suffocated infants and toddlers, writes Ms. Trottman. Drop-side cribs, popular because sliding down one side of the crib makes it easier for a parent to pick up a baby, have been particularly problematic.”

Ms. Silverman offers a number of important tips on how to “maximize crib safety.”
