- Phoenix Drop-Side Crib Recall Lawyers
Drop-side cribs have become a popular item for purchase by consumers of North America, as they offer convenience and the potential for the minimization of danger to both the parent and the child by removing the awkward posturing that was required with traditional cribs in order to place the child in or remove the infant from the crib. Unfortunately, after recent drop-side crib recalls, many people may need the help of drop-side crib recall lawyers for legal advice on the products.
A recall of these items in 2010 was one of the largest crib recalls ever in the United States. Overall, more than 2 million units were recalled in that instance, according to WCNC.
Drop-Side Crib Problems
In the 2010 drop-side recall, some of the cribs had a tendency for the side that drops to completely detach from the crib’s frame, either because of pressure exerted from the inside by the infant as he or she rolled into the side or because of the application of pressure from the parent who leaned into the side from the outside.
When this side detached, it created an instantly dangerous situation whereby either the child could fall out of the crib or the parent can fall into the crib with the child in hand.
Another manufacturing defect occurred in which the sleeping infant would roll into the collapsing side of the crib and exert pressure on it which led to the formation of a space between the side of the mattress and the crib’s dropping side. This space was large enough for the infant to fall into it and become trapped, leading to an immediate danger of suffocation.
Sadly, the Consumer Product Safety Commission received numerous reports of infant deaths due to suffocation. “CPSC staff has completed a comprehensive review of crib-related infant fatalities reported to the agency between January 2000 and the present,” the agency reported.
“CPSC staff is aware of 32 infant and toddler suffocation and strangulation deaths and hundreds of incidents that were caused by or related to drop-side detachments in cribs made by various manufacturers.”
In one recall instance at the time, the CPSC, in cooperation with Stork Craft Manufacturing Inc., of British Columbia, Canada, announced a voluntary recall of more than 2.1 million Stork Craft drop-side cribs, including about 147,000 Stork Craft drop-side cribs with the Fisher-Price logo.
