Government recalls 600,000 cribs

WASHINGTON, D.C. - September 17, 2008

The cribs being recalled were imported by /*Simplicity*/ of Reading, Pa., which is no longer in business. The cribs were sold in the following stores from January 2005 through August 2008 for between $150 and $300:

Officials say sizing problems with the cribs' hardware can lead to the side of the crib, which drops down, coming out of its tracks. If that happens, a gap is formed that creates a risk for suffocation and entrapment in the crib.

The recalled model numbers include: 8620, 8745, 8748, 8755, 8756, 8778, 8810, and 8994. The recalled drop side cribs have a date code, which can be found on a label on the headboard under the mattress support, which ends in 05DH, 05GB, 06DH, 06GB, 07DH or 07GB (examples: 1806 DH or 0507 GB). The recalled model names include: Aspen and Crib N Changer Combo, Gabrielle, Camille, Providence and Shenandoah. Only the brand name "Simplicity" can be seen on the label on the headboard.
