    Simplicity Nursery-in-a-Box Cribs Recalled

    June 7, 2007
    Simplicity is recalling about 40,000 of its Nursery-in-a-Box Cribs because of a choking and fall hazard.

    The assembly instructions provided with the cribs incorrectly instruct consumers how to attach the cribs drop side. If improperly installed, the drop side can disengage from the crib, posing fall and entrapment hazards for the child. Additionally, the metal locking pins on the drop side can pop off, presenting a choking hazard.

    CPSC is aware of an incident in which the cribs drop side, which was installed upside down, fell from its upright position and the metal locking pins became dislodged. Simplicity received a report of wrong instructions being packaged with the crib.

    The recalled cribs are part of the Nursery-in-a-Box furniture set which also includes a changing table and clothing organizer. The cribs are cherry, white or natural in color. Only model numbers 8910 and 8050 with serial numbers 3005 HY through 0806 HY are included in this recall. The model and serial numbers are printed on an envelope permanently attached to the mattress support. Simplicity, model and serial numbers are also printed on a label on the bottom rail of the headboard.

    The cribs were sold at department stores and childrens product stores from August 2005 through May 2007 for about $200.

    Consumers should immediately check the crib to make sure the drop side is securely fastened and correctly installed. Contact Simplicity to receive correct assembly instructions, or consumers can download the assembly instructions at the firms Web site, www.simplicityforchildren.com.

    Consumers can view a video on the firms Web site showing the proper assembly of the drop side. If the drop side is not properly installed, consumers should stop using the crib until it is assembled correctly.

    Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Simplicity at (800) 784-1982 anytime, or visit the firms Web site at www.simplicityforchildren.com.

    The recall is being conducted in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
