Agency proposes drop-side crib ban

WASHINGTON » The government took a big step yesterday toward eliminating from stores, hotels and daycare centers any crib with a side rail that can be raised and lowered – so-called drop-side cribs.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission proposed new rules that would ban the manufacture, sale and resale of drop-side cribs.

The new crib standard, likely to take effect next year, also would outlaw drop-sides at motels, hotels and child care facilities.

The push to ban drop-sides came as the commission announced the recall of 82,000 cribs from popular retailer Pottery Barn Kids. The commission said the cribs could pose a suffocation or entrapment risk to young children. The recall involves all Pottery Barn Kids drop-side cribs regardless of model number.
