Today marks another massive recall by crib manufacturers as several have issued voluntary recalls on millions of drop-side cribs amid concerns that children might suffocate, become trapped or fall out of the crib.

The majority of cribs involved in this recall are drop-side style cribs. These are cribs that have a movable rail which makes it easier for adults to reach the child.

The only exception to the drop-side style is a Child Craft Stationary Side Crib with Dowel. The crib side may be assembled upside-down yet look as though it has been assembled correctly. This causes a 5 inch gap at the top of the crib in which a child might become entangled.
