In 2010, the Consumer Product Safety Commission announced a voluntary recall of over 2 million drop-down cribs. The companies affected by the recalls are:
Drop-down cribs have a long history of problems. They’re also less structurally sound than four-fixed-side cribs. In the last five years, more than 9 million drop-down cribs have been recalled from the market. They’re also more susceptible to age-related wear and tear and incorrect assembly than fixed-side cribs.
The CPSC continues to actively investigate various cribs for potential drop-side and other hazards. This is part of a larger effort by the agency to rid the marketplace and homes of unsafe cribs.
