SOURCE: I have a Bright Future

A:You remove the dropside by removing the bumpers and lowering. Then you loosen the screws on th wooden bar under the mattress base without taking apart . If necessary loosen the screws on the frame, but should only be necessary if the mattress base was put in with the straight hooks facing you. In any case you should not need to completely take apart, but still a pain!

Is there a recall for the Melanie 343-7134N PTD


It looks like Bright Futures makes this crib and as of today is not recalled. However that could change.
If it is a dropside crib, a wave of recalls is expected making the dropside into a stationary side (No more moving up and down). You might check at the local stores that carry any Bright Futures products ( I am pretty sure Walmarts do in the form of Bouncy Seats) and get a contact info phone number off a box on the shelf. Call them and get the information you need.
Good luck.

Has my crrib been recalled? its fron jcpenny bright future convertable sleight 343-8200 PTD thank you


Here is a list of the cribs that have been recalled, I did not see your model on the list:

U.S. CPSC Crib Information

Also, the crib is sold under several different names, Modus Furniture is one of them and it's not listed there either.

General rule of thumb is basically that drop side cribs have been determined unsafe. Most manufacturers are providing an immobilization kit voluntarily even if their crib was not recalled. My crib is from Pottery Barn, wasn't listed on the site but they are sending out kits anyway.

If your crib is a drop side crib, I would call JC Penney to see if they are providing kits....but the answer to your question is no, it has not; but it may be in the future so I would investigate getting a kit through JC Penney.

The manufacturers are not asking for proof of purchase (many folks buy second hand cribs), they are only asking for the information on your crib.

I have a delta love 2002 4925. has it been recalled? if so what is the problem? How do I fix it?


Most drop side cribs have been recalled.

You can read the details of the Delta recalls here. This is their website and you can access information on fixing the problem and getting an immobilization kit.

Basically, almost all drop side cribs have been recalled and it has been determined that they should not be drop side anymore.

Here is the official information:

Is storkcraft baby crib 04570-035 being recalled?


Checking the model number at the Storkcraft website is not possible at the moment due to overwhelming traffic. Check the manufacturing date and compare it to the information below to assess whether your crib might be involved. This recall involves Stork Craft drop-side cribs and Stork Craft drop-side cribs with the Fisher- Price logo. This recall does not involve any cribs that do not have a drop-side. This recall does
not involve any cribs with metal rod drop-side hardware2_bing.gif. It involves only those cribs with plastic
trigger and one-hand-system drop-side hardware.
This recall includes Stork Craft cribs with manufacturing and distribution dates between January
1993 and October 2009. This recall also includes Stork Craft cribs with the Fisher-Price logo that
have manufacturing dates between October 1997 and December 2004. The Stork Craft cribs with
the Fisher-Price logo were first sold in the U.S. in July 1998 and in Canada in September 1998.
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.

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.
