Bassettbaby recalls 90,000 drop-side cribs.
Yes ANOTHER recall of drop side cribs has been issued. I recently said that in my opinion, parents just shouldn't purchase a drop side crib. This is why. This, of course, is just my own personal Mommy Opinion, but it seems like I see a lot of drop-side crib recalls. Because there are affordable, functional alternatives to a drop side crib, I'm not sure why so many are still sold. I know that for some parents with back problems or other physical limitations, there probably aren't alternatives, but I don't believe that every single drop-side crib is sold to someone who couldn't use a traditional style crib. That said, here are the details: The latest recall was issued by Bassettbaby and was done so voluntarily in cooperation with the CPSC Product Recalled: Bassett Drop-side cribs with external plastic hardware Risks: Entrapment, suffocation and fall hazards. Injuries: There were 18 reported incidents of issues with the drop side, but no reported injuries. Is your crib part of the recall? The cribs were sold between January 200 and August 2010 at different childrens retail stores. Prices ranged from approximately $200 to $500.
