The Consumer Product Safety Commission has committed to enacting a mandatory safety standard this year that will ban the sale and manufacture of baby cribs with sides that drop down, a fixture of the American nursery that has been linked to dozens of children’s deaths. The CPSC has revealed that 32 children have suffocated or strangled to death in the last decade when the drop sides of their cribs separated. They say most of the deaths occurred in the last few years. Another 14 entrapment deaths in cribs may be due to drop-side failure, but the agency says it doesn’t have enough information to be certain. Thus far the CPSC has recalled more than 7 million drop-side cribs.
