Nearly 1.6 million cribs are being voluntarily recalled by Delta Enterprises after the deaths of two infants. The recall targets older versions of its drop-side cribs made between 1995 and 2005. The product recall does not affect any cribs at retail stores now.
Delta Enterprises has announced that 985,000 drop-side cribs have safety pegs that may have been lost by customers during reassembly, and that another 600,000 may have worn spring-pegs after customers have used the cribs repeatedly.
The two infants who died suffocated in their cribs. One of them became stuck in a gap created by the detached side of a crib. This gap was caused by the lack of a safety peg. The second infant died when the crib side detached after a spring-peg failed.
