  • Delta Enterprise Corp. of New York, N.Y.
  • Evenflo of Miamisburg, Ohio
  • Jardine Enterprises of Taipei, Taiwan
  • LaJobi of Cranbury, N.J.
  • Million Dollar Baby of Montebello, Calif.
  • Simmons Juvenile Products, Inc. of New London, Wis.

Repeated issues with drop-down cribs

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.
