ban of drop side cribs, crib recall, crib safety, drop-side cribs banned
New crib requirements passed recently by the CPSC will stop traditional drop-side cribs from being made or sold within the next six months. The new crib requirements are among the most stringent in the world. This action follows many recalls in the past five years due to mechanical failure. There have been many injuries and deaths to small kids who have been trapped by the faulty drop-side panel.
Parents who are using drop-side cribs should check the hardware on the cribs to be certain it is working properly. They should also check to see if it has been recalled. Some manufacturers will send a hardware immobilizer to convert the drop-side to a fixed panel. The following link lists crib manufacturers, their phone numbers, and website. Check to see if your crib is on the list.
