Question re: recalled cribs

Hi, Sorry to bother you, didn't know who else to ask. I was looking for info for a lady about her baby crib. It took me about 45 minutes but I ran into a website with a listing of cribs that were recalled. Very bad as they say babies have died from these cribs. I told that woman, gave her the link. I've tried to find all questions pertaing to that crib but wondering if there is an easier way to get the word out about it? Thanks for your time. Enjoy the game :)

    Thank you! I will send an email to the office, it will be there when they do open. What worries me most is the fact that there are so many different people on here asking about the recalled cribs and don't seem aware of the recall. I had to dig deep to find it. I will sleep better after I send the email. Your a peach!!

Yes, if you click on their screen nickname and there is a Ask Me button available you can click on that and send a personal message. Otherwise, she will have to weed through our answers until she gets to yours. Being a weekend we have no staff around to intercede in a clear and obvious situation like this. I know I and the others would have no objection of abandoning the question entirely to get word to her directly, but it has to be staff that does this.

You could email experts@fixya and see if someone is in the office by now in Israel who can do this. Good Luck and let me know.

When I saw your answer I thought the same thing. Its scary to know there is some child at risk and that cribs dot com never notified her of the recall. That's scandalous and I hope she at least heeds my advice and gets a hold of the BBB online. As cribs dot com is clearly negligent. Fortunately for her, there has been no accident. I couldn't tell either whether this crib is still being used or not and thus I suggested to at least take some measure to keep it from dropping down again, even if you use duct tape.

And, perhaps she had been googleing and discovered the recall notice. We may never know.

Nice to meet you,
Worldvet

    Clearly you are doing great work in your Area of Expertise. I have three children and two grand children and what has happened over the last 30 years in crib safety is great, its a wonder we all made through childhood back in the early fifties. But, baby furniture was made a lot differently back in the day, so to speak; it was passed down one generation to another. Now, that's not so much the case anymore.

    Keep up the great work. See you on the boards,

Your crib was recalled and company is out of business. DO NOT USE FOR YOUR NEW BABY.
This recall will be carried out by retailers since the manufacturer is no longer in business. These cribs were sold at Walmart, Target and Babies R Us stores. You should contact the store where you purchased the crib to receive a refund, store credit or replacement crib.Do not attempt to fix a recalled Simplicity crib. Please find a safe, alternative sleeping location for your baby until the crib can be replaced. It's important to note, as well, that all Simplicity drop-side cribs are already under recall due to a problem with the drop-side.https://www.cpsc.gov/en/recalls/2010/simplicity-cribs-recalled-by-retailers-mattress-support-collapse-can-cause-suffocation-and-strangulation/

I bought my 6 month old baby boy a crib at little angels network consignment sale last year . later to find out on my own,that this bed is not safe,so i research to see if there was a recall on this...


My 2 1/2 year old was in a Delta Crib that turned out to be Recalled and it was only because of the Drop Down side - they said there were no issues with her Crib itself but with all of the Issues they had had last year they are being safer and not sorry - On the board under the mattress I found the model # and I called Delta (Got their # off of DeltaEnterprises.com) and they sent me two peices to install to keep the drop down side from going down - and that fixed any issue it had - and it is a safe crib still. Call them do not tell them you got it second hand - and give them the Model # and they should send you a "fix Kit" for the problem. Free of charge.

I am missing the guide parts that are moving the front mobile gate up and down on the crib.i had this crib for 7 years.is a graco 2 in 1 crib.can you please tell me where i can find the parts?


Graco is not a manufacturer of cribs, they sell their name to crib makers. Currently, LaJobi is the maker of Graco cribs, and they offer a Lauren crib (which was recalled!). But, you say this crib is 7 years old? That is before LaJobi made their cribs (I think). Check the labeling on the crib (on the headboard, under the mattress) and see if the actual manufacturer is listed. If you are looking to replace a plastic part for the drop side, then I recommend you don't bother and just get rid of the crib. Those plastic parts are connected to the drop side by screws, and removing and replacing a screw into wood makes the wood weaker in that area. You take the chance it will never be tight and if it falls off in the middle of the night, that could be a deadly consequence for your baby. That is why so many cribs are being recalled now. The drop side hardware breaks, parts get lost, and for a few unfortunates, this results in a child dying.  Check the label, see who makes it and whether or not it was recalled as shown in this link: http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml10/10212.html

Is this crib recalled wm-1633-0


Storkcraft had a recall on some of their cribs.IF it is a Storkcraft you have to call them and give them the model number.
These cribs were made between May 2000 and November 2008.They were sold until Jan.2009.
Even if your's isn't a Storkcraft you should be able to call the manufacturer of your crib and ask them.
Storkcraft,for one,did not post the model numbers that were recalled.
The manufacturing date can be found on the lower right hand corner of the instruction sheet which is glued on the mattress base.
The cribs were sold in various styles and finishes. The manufacture date, model number, crib name, country of origin, and the firm's name, address, and contact information are located on the assembly instruction sheet attached to the mattress support board. The firm's insignia "storkcraft baby" is inscribed on the drop side teething rail of some cribs.For more information, consumers may contact Stork Craft toll-free at 866-361-3321 anytime to order the free replacement kit or log on to the newwindow.gif firms Web site.
These cribs have had recalls as well:
Jenny Lind crib model 6982 with lot numbers 8021, 8024, 8025, 8052, 8053, 8055, 8056, and 8070 and model 6983 with lot numbers 8022, 8023, 8026, 8027, 8031, 8032.
Aspen 3 in 1, Aspen 4 in 1, Nursery-in-a-Box, Crib N Changer Combo, Chelsea and Pooh 4 in 1. The recall also involves the following Simplicity cribs that used the Graco logo: Aspen 3 in 1, Ultra 3 in 1, Ultra 4 in1, Ultra 5 in 1, Whitney and the Trio.

The recalled cribs have one of the following model numbers, which can be found on the envelope attached to the mattress support and on the label attached to the headboard: 4600, 4605, 4705, 5000, 8000, 8324, 8800, 8740, 8910, 8994, 8050, 8750, 8760, and 8996.
13 babies in the US alone died as a result of the Simplicity cribs...in Canada most of them were sold in Zellers...but don't try to take it back there.
pinehurst.jpgLaJobi and CPSC announced two recalls for 4,900 cribs.

First, 2,000 Bonavita "Cabana" cribs were recalled for slat failure -- the slats can come loose and/or break. LaJobi had ten reports of slats coming out of the rails and six reports of slats breaking.

Also, 2,900 Babi Italia "Pinehurst" cribs and Bonavita "Hudson" cribs were recalled for drop side failures.
Step 1 Register your baby crib as soon as you bring it home so you will receive product recalls automatically. Usually manufacturers ask you to register to validate warranty information but this will also register you to receive product recalls.
  • Step 2 Check the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission website regularly for recall information. This is a dependable resource that many consumers are not aware of.
  • Step 3 Visit your crib manufacturer's website occasionally and type in your crib name or number under their search option.
  • Step 4 Monitor the recall website www.recalls.gov that constantly updates recall information on all consumer products including baby cribs.
  • Step 5 Stay up to date with current news reports and printed media outlets. They are often the first to announce safety recalls and possible product issues.
