SafetyCraft Cribs Deemed Unsafe

WASHINGTON (AP) – A federal consumer agency is warning that SafetyCraft brand full-size and portable drop-side cribs manufactured or distributed by Generation 2 Worldwide contain drop-side hardware that may be dangerous to toddlers and infants.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday that the hardware found on SafetyCraft drop-side cribs can fail and place infants and toddlers at risk of strangulation and suffocation.

The agency’s staff urges parents and caregivers to stop using these cribs immediately and find an alternative, safe sleeping environment for their baby. They say people should not attempt to fix these cribs.

The commission said Generation 2 Worldwide of Dothan, Ala., ceased operations in 2005.
