C&T/Sorelle Crib Recall, visit the CPSC website.
Parents should stop using these recalled cribs immediately and go to the C&T/Sorelle website
for information on how to receive a free replacement kit. However, four of the older models of the cribs â the Hampton, Jackie, Nina and Rita models - may not be able to be repaired. C&T will provide a $100 voucher towards purchase of another C&T product instead.
Graco/LaJobi Crib Recall
The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) just announced a voluntary recall of the Graco-branded drop-side cribs manufactured by LaJobi. The crib hardware can break or fail, causing infants and toddlers to fall out of the crib or become entwined in mattresses without proper support.
CPSC and Graco/LaJobi have received 99 reports of drop-side incidents. In two of them, children became entrapped in the gap created by the detached drop side, but were freed by their caregivers (thank goodness!). Six other children fell through the gap, including one who sustained a mild concussion. All other injuries were minor.

Parents should stop using these recalled cribs immediately and contact LaJobi
to receive a free hardware retrofit kit that will immobilize the drop side. In the meantime, CPSC urges parents and caregivers to find an alternative, safe crib
for their babies.
Simplicity Crib Recall
The Simplicity crib recall involves Simplicity full-size cribs with tubular metal mattress-support frames. The frames can bend or detach and cause part of the mattress to collapse, creating a space into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged, entrapped or fall out of the crib. At least 13 injuries and one death have occurred.
All crib styles and model numbers involved in this Simplicity recall are listed and pictured on the CPSC website.
The Simplicity crib recall does not include contact info or repair kits, because the company is out of business. CPSC demands consumers do not try to fix these faulty cribs.
Since 2007, more than seven million drop-side cribs have been recalled due to incidents of injury. Be sure to check your cribâs brand and label against any CPSC crib recalls.Get more info on product recalls on our product recall page.report abuse
