Delta Enterprise Corp. Recalls A Million And A Half Cribs

Comments Off

Tuesday, Delta Enterprises announced the recall of over 1.5 million cribs. The recall is linked to two infant deaths and is based on "two different types of problematic hardware used on cribs sold from 1995 through 2005. The hardware, which includes safety pegs for one set of cribs and spring pegs for another, can create a hazard if not properly installed. The drop side of the cribs can fall and disengage, creating a gap that can entrap and suffocate infants." The recalled cribs are not "currently in inventory at retailers, though they could be sold in secondhand stores," company spokesperson, Jack Gutt said.

The recall is thought to be the biggest ever of it’s kind. It follows other recalls where 600,000 Simplicity Inc. drop-side cribs that involved hardware problems and 900,000 Simplicity convertible bassinets were called back. Those items were also linked to strangulation deaths of infants.
