The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission has issued a statement showing that Simplicity Inc. and SFCA Inc., a Reading, Pennsylvania based company, has become totally defunct and has left a large number of cribs in the hands of consumers, cribs that are major safety hazards for the children that rest in them.

According to the press release, the manufacturer Simplicity is no longer in business, they are no longer answering phone calls or e-mails, nor are they providing repair kits to refurbish the hundreds of thousands of defective cribs that are out on the market.

Over a dozen deaths have already occurred due to the shoddy craftsmanship of the Simplicity cribs and bassinets. The Consumer Product Safety Commission is urging anyone who has one of these devices to throw away the units that cannot be repaired, as the risk of death is ever present.

More than 7 different lines of Simplicity Crib are subject to the recall. White Lancaster Cribs, Graco branded Aspen 3-in-1 Cribs, Nursery-in-a-Box Cribs, Simplicity Drop Side Cribs, and all Simplicity Cribs with tubular metal mattress-support frames are at risk of death or injury. The press release issued by the CPSC has highlighted instructions and model numbers associated with the recall.

Several bassinets have also been recalled, including the 3-in-1 and 4-in-1 convertible bassinets, as well as the Graco-branded bassinets and that of the Winnie the Pooh motif bassinets.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission has requested that consumers contact the Commission to report any incident or injury with one of these Simplicity branded products. Those who wish for more information can contact the commission as well.

The Stork Craft Tuscany 4-in-1 Stages Crib has received tremendously high reviews, and remains safe for the child. A safe crib is imperative for the protection necessary in the early stages of a child’s life.
