In a report from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Dream on Me drop-side cribs have been recalled due to several hazards. Both full-size and portable drop-side cribs pose a risk of falls, lacerations, suffocation and entrapment to children. CPSC has received 69 incident reports concerning minor injuries, with the potential for serious damage. The full-size cribs contain hardware that can fail or break, causing the drop side to detach. This opens up space where a child can become trapped, leading to suffocation or strangulation. The detachment of the drop side could also lead to a child falling. The portable cribs contain the same hardware malfunctions but additionally, there are potential defects with the latch and slats. This can lead to lacerations. Consumers are advised to immediately stop using the Dream on Me Drop-Side cribs and contact the company. Those with full-size cribs will receive a free repair kit and those with portable cribs will receive a free replacement crib that has fixed sides. When a defect in the manufacturing of a product leads to injuries, you may be able to seek compensation through a defective product claim.
