Yikes! Children’s Product Recalls: Graco Strollers, Dorel Asia Cribs

Dorel-asia-cribjpg-c95b3d95 Two widely used children products have been recalled. If you have them, stop using them and get repair kits.

First are 635,000 cribs made by Dorel Asia SLR. The drop-side hardware
on the cribs can fail, causing the drop side to detach from the crib.
When the side detaches, it creates a space in which an infant or
toddler can become entrapped and suffocate or strangle.

CPSC and Dorel
Asia received a report of the death of a 6-month-old from Cedar Rapids,
Iowa, who became entrapped and strangled in a crib after the drop-side
hardware broke. The recalled cribs also pose a serious entrapment and
strangulation hazard when a slat is damaged.

Second, Graco Children’s Products is recalling 1.5 million Passage,
Alano and Spree strollers.
Some styles of the products have hinges on
the canopy that could cut and/or amputate a child’s fingertip when the
canopy is opened or closed.
