Most if not all of the simplicity brand drop-side cribs have been recalled, including the Graco 8740.

Here is the CPSP link regarding this crib:
http://www.cpsc.gov/CPSCPUB/PREREL/prhtml09/09260list.html
http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml07/07307.html

According to the CPSP information the company appears to be out of business to some degree and are not providing repair kits.

If you know where you purchased the crib, check to see what their policy is regarding recalled baby products.

We had purchased ours at walmart almost 8 years ago and were able to return it to another store in a different state for a full refund last summer. They did not need a receipt received, they just needed the manufacturer label on the part that the mattress lies on.

Because ours was older, the customer service clerk did have to work hard to find the crib in their system, but once she did, it was not problem at all.

Because it's been recalled, the break will not likely affect your ability to return it.

Replacement mattress 46 by 22"


Are you looking for replacement mattresses? You can check out mattress stores or online stores like Amazon. There are various mattresses to choose from. You should consider getting organic beds or natural mattresses as they are more breathable and they do not emit strong chemical gas.

Is this crib on the recall


Yes it is under the recall.

The death of two more infants trapped in Simplicity bassinets prompted the Consumer Product Safety Commission to re-announce its August 2008 recall of the child beds on Thursday.

The recall was first announced last year after the death of two other children. A total of four deaths have been reported to the commission involving Simplicity bassinets.

The recall includes more than 900,000 bassinets sold as far back as 2001 and as recently as last year.

The hazard in the Simplicity 3-in-1 and 4-in-1 convertible bassinets stems from metal bars spaced farther apart than federal standards allow, the commission said.

If Velcro-attached fabric that covers metal bars on the bassinet is attached improperly, a pocket can be created where children can become trapped, the commission said.

Children also can become stuck between the bassinet's metal bars without the fabric attached, the agency said.

In the latest two incidents, a 6-month-old girl in Fort Worth died in January after she was trapped between two exposed bars on the bassinet.

In September 2008, a 2-month-old girl in Demorest, Ga., suffocated when she was caught in a pocket of fabric, which was not properly secured to the bassinet.

The commission also received two other reports involving 10-week-old and 3-month-old infants whose heads became trapped between the bassinet's lower bar and mattress. The infants were freed and uninjured, the commission said.

The recalled bassinets were manufactured before May 18, 2008, and include some sold under the Graco brand and others with Winnie the Pooh characters printed on the bed's fabric.

Simplicity is owned by children's furniture manufacturer SFCA Inc. of Reading, Pa.

The model numbers for recalled Simplicity bassinets are: 3000, 3010, 3011, 3012, 3013, 3014, 3015, 3016, 3017, 3020, 3025, 3026, 3027, 3030, 3040, 3045, 3046, 3047, 3050, 3060, 3070, 3111, 3112, 343-8363, 343-8399, 5730, 5750, 8383, 9250 and TD250, the commission said.

Model numbers on the recalled Graco-branded bassinets include: 3000CL, 3010HAV, 3011WHE, 3011WHK, 3014NGS, 3016LAU, 3017NCB, 3025C, 3030SAR, 3050SAR, 3111DPC, 3111ZOL, 3112DOH, 3122TGT, 5730FKB, 5750SAR, 8393, Graco said in its own recall statement.

Owners of the recalled bassinets can return the beds to the stores where they bought them, the safety commission said. Sources: http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-crib-recall21-2009aug21,0,4022989.story

A piece broke


I just purchased this crib from craiglist for my daughter and future grandson. We broke the plastic track assembly on the lower left front. I just now called the customer service number and they are sending me the complete assembly and when I told her it had one stripped out bolt, she is including a complete hardware package. Didn't cost me one penny! Now that is true customer service!!!!! This is for the 3 in 1 sleigh crib, Model No. DASE5009. The customer service number is 800-295-1980. Their hours are 8am - 5pm est M-F. Hope this helps!

Broken baby bed


It is a useless crib! Please discard it. Nelson has been out of business for at least 8 years, thus this crib is VERY OLD and does not meet the current safety standards, even if it wasn't broken. Don't trust your child's life to a repaired old crib.
