What is the problem?

The crib front can separate from the side panels and create a hazardous gap that can allow a child to fall out or become entrapped between the front and side panels.

Special note regarding all cribs: New safety standards for cribs went into effect on June 28, 2011. In addition to a ban on the traditional drop-side, there are new requirements for stronger slats, hardware and mattress supports, as well as new rules for more rigorous testing. Although older cribs were not automatically recalled, it is now illegal to sell cribs that do not comply with the new laws. Furthermore, consumers should not plan to give away or donate cribs purchased before June 28 , 2011 unless they have actual knowledge (such as a letter or certificate from the manufacturer) that the crib complies with the new laws. For more information, please visit our blog post with FAQs about cribs.
