Delta drop-side, wooden stabilizer bar cribs

Description: Delta Recalls to Repair Drop-Side Cribs Due to Entrapment, Suffocation and Fall Hazards: Consumers also urged to check stabilizer bar assembly to prevent mattress support collapse Name of Product: Delta cribs Units: About 747,000 drop-side cribs; and all fixed and drop-side cribs using wooden stabilizer bars. Manufacturer: Delta Enterprise, of New York, N.Y. Drop-Side Hazard: The cribs’ drop sides can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop side to fall out of position, creating a space into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged or entrapped, which can lead to strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear. Mattress Support Hazard: In addition, the wooden stabilizer bars on some Delta drop-side and fixed-side cribs can be installed upside down, which puts extra stress on the crib and can cause the mattress platform to collapse, creating a gap in which an infant or toddler can become entrapped and posing a risk of strangulation or suffocation. Incidents/Injuries: CPSC and Delta have received 57 reports involving drop sides that have malfunctioned or detached, resulting in three entrapments, including two reports of bruises and one child who fell out of the crib. Additionally, CPSC is aware of 19 reports in which stabilizer bars were installed upside-down, resulting in 10 mattress platform collapses. Two children were entrapped but freed without injury and one child sustained scratches. Description: This recall involves Delta drop-side cribs with three different types of drop-side hardware and Delta cribs with wooden stabilizer bars that support the mattress platform. Consumers should visit www.cribrecallcenter.com for photographs and models of the affected hardware types and instructions on correct assembly of the stabilizer bars. Sold at: Children’s product retail stores nationwide and on-line from January 2000 through May 2009 for between $100 and $300. Manufactured in: China, Indonesia, Thailand, and Croatia. Drop-Side Crib Remedy: Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled drop-side cribs and contact Delta to receive a free repair kit that will immobilize the drop side. In the meantime, find an alternate, safe sleep environment for the child, such as a bassinet, play yard or toddler bed depending on the child’s age. Mattress Support Remedy: Consumers who have cribs with wooden stabilizer bars supporting the mattress should inspect the stabilizer bars to ensure they are correctly installed in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions and inspect the joints of their crib for any damage.
