CPSC Urges Consumers to Check Their Homes for Numerous Simplicity Nursery Product Recalls

CPSC Urges Consumers to Check Their Homes for Numerous Simplicity Nursery Product Recalls

Simplicity Inc. and SFCA Inc., the Reading, Pa.-based company that purchased the assets of juvenile product manufacturer Simplicity after foreclosure, are no longer in business. They are no longer answering phone calls, responding to e-mails from consumers, or providing repair kits to fix hundreds of thousands of defective cribs.

At least 13 children have tragically died in recalled Simplicity cribs and bassinets. CPSC is urging all parents, caregivers, online sellers and purchasers, daycare providers, and thrift store owners to immediately check if they have one of the following Simplicity-made or Simplicity-branded products and dispose of those units where there is no longer a remedy.

If there is no remedy available for a recalled Simplicity crib, parents and caregivers are advised to dispose of these cribs, even if it is believed that the hardware and drop side have been installed correctly. All of the recalled cribs have the potential to pose a danger to young children.

Consumers are urged to continue to contact CPSC at 800-638-2772 or info@cpsc.gov to report any incident or injury with a Simplicity brand product.
