Repair Kits Ready To Be Sent To Parents and Caregivers With Recalled Simplicity Cribs

October 25, 2007
Release Number: 08-043

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with Simplicity Inc., of Reading, Pa., is announcing today that a remedy is now available for parents and caregivers who were impacted by the September 21, 2007, voluntary recall of about 1 million Simplicity and Graco logo cribs with older hardware.

The hazard with the recalled crib is that the drop-side can detach, which creates a dangerous gap and can lead to the entrapment and suffocation of infants. CPSC and Simplicity are aware of three deaths in Simplicity manufactured cribs with older style hardware, as well as seven infant entrapments and 56 incidents with these cribs.

The Simplicity crib models with recalled hardware include: Aspen 3 in 1, Aspen 4 in 1, Nursery-in-a-Box, Crib N Changer Combo, Chelsea and Pooh 4 in 1. The recall also involves the following Simplicity cribs that used the Graco logo: Aspen 3 in 1, Ultra 3 in 1, Ultra 4 in 1, Ultra 5 in 1, Whitney and the Trio.
