Drop-side Cribs Recalled For Safety Risks

recall crib Drop side Cribs Recalled For Safety RisksMore than 40,000 drop-side cribs are being recalled for safety concerns. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says the recalled Ethan Allen, Angel Line and Victory Land Heritage Collection cribs could pose a suffocation or entrapment risk if the drop-side rail detaches because of faulty hardware.

Ethan Allen has received five reports of incidents with its cribs. Angel Line has received one report of an incident with its cribs, which are sold at Ababy.com, Babyage.com and other online stores. Victory Land has received 17 reports of incidents involving its Heritage Collection cribs, which are sold by Kmart.

CPSC urged parents on Friday to stop using the cribs and contact the companies for a free repair kit.
