Recalls: Dorel drop-side cribs and Graco strollers
Once again, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has announced a recall of drop-side cribs. This time it’s for over 600,000 cribs distributed by Dorel. Hardware can fail causing the drop side to come loose. This can cause a baby to strangle and suffocate.
As a general rule, cribs with sides that don’t move are usually the safest option.
About 1.5 million Graco strollers have also been recalled. The hinges on the stroller’s canopy pose a hazard to children’s fingers. Several children have had fingers amputated because they were injured by the hinges. The CPSC Web site has detailed info about the recall.
