Simplicity Drop Side Cribs RECALL Issued 09/19/08

Fri, Sep 19, 2008 (BabyCenter News) — Simplicity has announced a recall of about 600,000 drop-side cribs in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).

Due to sizing problems with the crib's hardware, the drop side — the side of the crib that lowers — can come off the tracks, creating a hazardous gap. If this happens, a child could get caught in the gap and suffocate. CPSC and the company that now owns Simplicity, SFCA, are aware of nine incidents in which the drop side detached from the crib. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves crib models that are different from the 1 million Simplicity cribs recalled in September 2007.

The model numbers currently being recalled include: 8620, 8745, 8748, 8755, 8756, 8778, 8810, and 8994. The date code can be found on a label on the headboard under the mattress support and ends in 05DH, 05GB, 06DH, 06GB, 07DH or 07GB (examples: 1806 DH or 0507 GB). The recalled model names include: Aspen and Crib N Changer Combo, Gabrielle, Camille, Providence, and Shenandoah. Only the brand name "Simplicity" can be seen on the label on the headboard.

The recalled cribs were sold at various retailers nationwide — including department stores, children's stores, and mass merchandisers (see list below) — from January 2005 through August 2008 for between $150 and $300. They were made in China.

What to Do? Immediately stop using the crib and return it to the place where you bouth it for a refund or store credit. For additional information please contact the retailer from which you purchased.

I find it interesting that they have another safety recall. They had a safety recall on the same thing about a year and a half ago.

Maybe we can get a forum sticky for recalled baby and childrens items? I wouldnt have heard about this if you didnt post anything. I however am on the safe side, I don't use drop sided cribs. But maybe a good idea to talk to Joy about having on the forum?
