Product name Simplicity full-size cribs with tubular metal mattress-support frames
Description Simplicity full-size cribs with tubular metal mattress-support frames. This recall includes fixed-side and drop-side cribs. This recall involves all Simplicity cribs with tubular metal mattress-support frames, which include but are not limited to following models: Aspen 4-in-1 (8755), Chelsea Deluxe 4-in-1 Convertible Sleep System (8324), Graco 4-in-1 Ultra Sleep System (4600), Graco Aspen 3-in-1 (8740); Simplicity Crib and Changer Combo (8994); Simplicity Ellis Deluxe 4-in-1 Convertible Sleep System (8676); and Simplicity Nursery-in-a-Box Convertible Crib (8910). Some model numbers are followed by letters, indicating the color or furnish of the crib. The name "Simplicity Inc." or "Simplicity for Children" appears on a label on the crib's mattress-support frame and/or the crib's end panels. 
Problem These cribs pose a risk of serious injury or death due to entrapment, strangulation, suffocation and fall hazards to infants and toddlers. The crib's tubular metal mattress-support frame can bend or detach and cause part of the mattress to collapse, creating a space into which an infant or toddler can roll and become wedged, entrapped or fall out of the crib. U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) urges parents and caregivers to stop using these cribs immediately and find an alternative, safe sleeping environment for their baby. Do not attempt to fix these cribs. 
Distribution The recalled cribs were sold at Walmart, Target, Babies R Us and other stores nationwide for between $150 and $300. 
Company Simplicity and its successor, SFCA Inc., are no longer in business. Consumers should contact the store where the crib was purchased to receive a refund, replacement crib or store credit.
