Crib Recall

Mommy Alert! Delta Recalls 1.6 Million Cribs

One of the few things that most parents are willing to put some good money into is a safe and sturdy crib for their newborn. Couples spend hours fretting over which crib seems safest causing some to spend thousands of dollars while others find bargain deals at less than $100. Unfortunately, those who suspected they got a good deal on a Delta crib may have to check their model and year. Delta Enterprise Corp, one of the world's largest crib manufacturers, recalled nearly 1.6 million cribs yesterday.

According to the US Consumer Product Safety Commission:

The CPSC staff is aware of a death of an eight-month-old child who became entrapped and suffocated when the drop side of the crib detached in a reassembled crib where the safety pegs were not installed. CPSC is also aware of two entrapments and nine disengagement incidents in cribs where the safety pegs were missing.

I personally dont think, and this is sad, lol, that saftey features should be left up to the installer. People are so lazy these days. Why werent the safety pegs a non-removable section, instead of something extra.

Sarana, I was just thinking the same thing. The customer failed to install a part so the manufacturer has to recall the entire line?

It's strange they are recalling them if it was just an error in installing the cribs. It seems like that's the fault of the installer, not the manufacturer.

i think that if i or my husband were to put that together & there were "safety pegs" we would have DEFINITELY installed them, if they were missing.... i would have called the company and asked them to send them. it's such a shame w/all the recalls and safety issues you have to worry about.... like it's not hard enough already....
