FEDERAL BAN ON DROP-SIDE CRIBS ANNOUNCED

   After more than 30 infant deaths since 2001, Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Chairman Inez Tenenbaum, U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), Congressmembers Joseph Crowley (D-NY) and Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) and a New York family whose child died from faulty cribs have announced a federal ban on the sale, manufacture, and distribution of all drop-side cribs. The new crib safety rules address a requirement established in Section 104 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) of 2008, which was championed by Rep. Schakowsky. The CPSIA is a sweeping child safety law that calls for all major juvenile products to have new and improved safety standards.

Drop-side cribs, those with at least one side that moves up and down, have proven to be fatal. More than 30 infants have died from drop-side cribs, including two New York infants who were suffocated - a 7-month-old from Gouverneur, NY and a 9-month-old in the Bronx.
