On April 29, 2010, Graco – a major manufacturer of infant care and nursery products – announced that it is issuing a voluntary recall of the “drop-side” cribs (produced by it LaJobi, branded with the Graco trademark) has been selling since December 2006. Affecting 217,000 cribs currently on the market, the Graco recall was enacted due to reports that the drop side section of the crib was malfunctioning, as it was failing to lock and/or detaching from the crib. While this defect was allowing newborns to fall from their cribs, it was also reported to wedge, entrap and strangle infants.
Graco is instructing consumers who have purchased these cribs to immediately find an alternative sleeping arrangement for their babies and to return the defective baby cribs to their place of purchase for a full refund.
