  • One recall today: Simplicity cribs

    If you think you have the following item(s), click through to the CPSC press release for more details:

    Simplicity Brand Drop Side Cribs Recalled By Various Retailers Due To Serious Entrapment And Suffocation Hazard To Infants and Toddlers – Click through to the press release for details and additional pictures. Note that this is a separate and different recall from the recall of Simplicity bassinets.*

    As always, I highly recommend signing up for recall notifications by email at the CPSC web site.

    *Last week, the CPSC issued a follow-up advisory to warn that some of the recalled Simplicity bassinets are branded Graco and Winnie the Pooh. For more information, see the previous CPSC announcement.


    1. I heard this on the news yesterday and also got the e-mail alert. Which is good, because one of my twins had this crib! Had to take apart the crib and take it back to Walmart. They gave me cash for it, and I was able to find a nicer crib for only a little bit more money. I’m guessing Simplicity isn’t too happy they saved a couple bucks on the drop side parts now!
