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.
