Delta Crib Recall Re-Issued

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has re-issued a recall of 985,000 Delta cribs after learning of another infant death linked to the product.

The original recall of the Delta cribs with the “Crib Trigger Lock with Safety Peg” drop-side hardware was issued in October 2008 after an 8-month-old girl became entrapped and suffocated in the crib. You can read about the affected models here.

You can read WebMD’s original story about the recall here.

The cribs were sold between January 1995 and December 2005. The CPSC urges parents to be cautious about buying used cribs. The agency banned all drop-side cribs in 2010 because of ongoing safety issues.
