Georgia Consumers’ Alert: Baby Crib Recall

I want to pass this very important information to Georgia consumers, particularly parents and grandparents of infants, about a new crib recall. Federal regulators have ordered the recall of nearly 1.6 million cribs following the deaths of two infants. The Consumer Product Safety Commission and crib manufacturer Delta Enterprises announced the recall Monday citing problems with a mechanism known as a ‘spring peg’ as the defect which posed a risk to children. The recall, believed to be one of the largest in history, covers cribs and produced in China, Indonesia and Taiwan between 1995 and 2005.

Please check your crib NOW to see if it was manufactured by this crib maker, Delta Enterprises. If so,take it out of use immediately! Although the name “Delta Enterprises” makes it sound as if it is a U.S. manufacturer, the reality is these cribs were manufactured in China and other countries that simply do not have the same regulations and quality control as U.S. manufacturers. If you have experienced a problem with one of these cribs, please report it to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) right now! Here is a link to reach the CPSC. http://www.cpsc.gov/
