Over 600,000 cribs recalled after child's death
The death of a six-month old child has prompted the recall of about 635,000 cribs sold by Kmart, Sears, Wal-Mart and other stores.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission announced the recall Tuesday of 20 models of Dorel Asia cribs with both drop-sides and fixed front rails.
The cribs are being recalled because the drop side can detach from the crib, creating a space where a child can be trapped and suffocate or strangle, and because a child can be trapped if one of the slats is broken or damaged.
A 6-month-old child from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, strangled after getting trapped in the crib when the drop-side hardware broke.
CPSC and Barbados-based Dorel Asia SRL have received 31 reports of incidents involving drop-side cribs and 36 reports of broken slats.
