Product Recall: Nursery-in-a-Box Cribs

Filed under: Health & Safety: Babies, Baby Essentials

Simplicity Inc., of Reading, Pennsylvania, in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission, is voluntarily recalling their Nursery-in-a-Box Cribs. The assembly instructions provided with the cribs incorrectly instruct consumers how to attach the crib's drop side. If not installed correctly, the drop side can come off, allowing the child to fall or possibly trapping the child. In addition, metal locking pins can come loose, presenting a choking hazard. There was an incident in which the crib's drop side, which was installed upside down, fell from its upright position and the metal locking pins became dislodged. Simplicity received a report of wrong instructions being packaged with the crib.

These cribs are part of a Nursery-in-a-Box furniture set which also includes a changing table and clothing organizer. The cribs came in cherry, white, or natural colors. Only model numbers 8910 and 8050, serial numbers 3005 HY through 0806 HY are included in this recall. These sets were sold at department and children's stores from August 2005 through May 2007 for about $200.

If you have one of these cribs, verify that the drop side is securely fastened and installed correctly. Get in touch with Simplicity for a corrected set of instructions, or download the instructions from the Simplicity website. There is also a video showing how to install the drop side correctly. Do not use the crib unless the drop side is installed properly. For more information, contact Simplicity at (800) 784-1982 anytime, or visit the firm's Web site.
