Comments Off

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission today announced a voluntary recall of approximately 20,000 Simmons Kids Crib Mattresses becausesome of the crib mattresses can measure smaller than the 27 1/4 inch minimum width requirement for cribs, creating a gap between the mattress and crib side rails, posing an entrapment hazard to infants.

Simmons Kids and CPSC have received areport of a 6-month old baby becoming wedged between the mattress and crib’s frame. The baby was removed from the crib by the parent without injury.

The recalled mattresses involve open coil crib mattresses manufactured between July 1, 2006 and March 23, 2008
