Description This recall involves Delta drop-side cribs with three different types of drop-side hardware and Delta cribs with wooden stabilizer bars that support the mattress platform. Consumers should visit for photographs and models of the affected hardware types and instructions on correct assembly of the stabilizer bars. 
Problem Drop-Side Hazard - The cribs' drop side 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. Mattress Support Hazard - In addition, the wooden stabilizer bars on some Delta drop-side that have malfunctioned or detached, resulting in three entrapments, including two reports or bruises and one child who fell out of the crib.
