Bloomberg News (11/22 Plungis) reported, "Bassett Furniture Industries Inc. recalled about 90,000 drop-side cribs after reports of at least 154 incidents of failed hardware, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission said in a statement." The Commission noted, "In one of 18 incidents in which drop-side gates malfunctioned or detached, a child became entrapped between the mattress and the crib's frame." CPSC Chairman Inez Tenenbaum called drop-side cribs a "deadly hazard." Bloomberg adds "new crib requirements proposed in July will ban the design."
