It was just announced today that Dream on Me is recalling its drop-side cribs. The company is recalling the cribs in cooperation with the CPSC because the cribs pose “entrapment, suffocation, laceration, and fall hazards.” In total, approximately 22,000 of the full-size and portable drop-side cribs are being recalled by Dream on Me. As a Weston Products Liability Injury Lawyer, I wanted to discuss this recall and help spread the word to any parents who might own this product. This latest recall should be taken quite seriously due to the potentially horrifying consequences of an infant suffering an injury.
According to the CPSC Dream on Me Drop-Side Crib Recall Release, there have already been 69 reports of incidents involving Dream on Me cribs. Moreover, an 8 month year old girl suffered a minor head injury from the exposed plastic inside one of Dream on Me’s portable cribs. As a Weston Injury Lawyer, I would refer all parents who might be concerned, to the link to the CPSC Release above, which contains all of the information necessary to safely handle this recall.
Clearly, any crib that can break or cause a child to become entrapped is a dangerous product. Dream on Me has a duty to ensure that any crib it sells is safe for use. As a Weston Injury Attorney, I would like to see this recall carried out swiftly and efficiently so that we can limit the amount of future incidents involving these recalled cribs. There seems to be a definite potential for injury and I am glad that the CPSC and Dream on Me, Inc. are working towards ensuring that no more children are injured.
