Bexco Recalls to Repair Million Dollar Baby, Baby Mod and Da Vinci Brand Drop-Side Cribs Due to Entrapment, Suffocation and Fall Hazards
In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, Bexco Enterprises, Inc., d.b.a. Million Dollar Baby, of Montebello, Calif., is voluntarily recalling about 156,000 Drop-Side cribs sold under the brand names Million Dollar Baby, Baby Mod and Da Vinci. The cribs' drop sides can malfunction, detach or otherwise fail, causing part of the drop side to fall out of position, creating a space into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged or entrapped, which can lead to strangulation or suffocation. A child can also fall out of the crib. Drop-side incidents can also occur due to incorrect assembly and with age-related wear and tear.
