Darn this is us!!! Anyone have to return a crib? What happened? Did you get a new one free?
ALL SIMPLICITY CRIBS HAVE BEEN RECALLED
YOU CAN RETURN IT TO THE PLACE OF PURCAHSE FOR A REFUND WITH NO RECEIPT. This new recall is because of the metal supports holding up the mattress, not the drop side, so it can't be used as a Toddler bed either. This also means that cribs that are not dropsides are included. DO NOT sell these cribs. Here is a link to the CPSC's website: http://www.cpsc.gov/cpscpub/prerel/prhtml10/10211.html
We are writing to let you know that the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is announcing the recall of all Simplicity full-size cribs with tubular metal mattress-support frames, due to a potential product defect. This recall includes fixed-side and drop-side cribs. These cribs pose a risk of serious injury or death due to entrapment, strangulation, suffocation and fall hazards to infants and toddlers. This is the full list of recalled cribs: Description UPC Bellamy Crib 5767320810 Ultra Deluxe Sleep System 74102204600 Oxford Crib 5767374315 4-in-1 Crib - Celery Green 74102280202 4-in-1 Crib - Antique White 74102280203 Nursery-in-a-Box, Cherry 74102289003 3 PC Baby's Room, Cherry 74102280520 Nursery in a Box, Natural 74102289002 Nursery-in-a-Box, Natural 74102280521 Nursery in a Box 74102289001 Nursery-in-a-Box, White 74102280522 Providence Nursery Organizer 74102283251 Kingston 4-in-1 Convertible Crib 74102285580 Providence Crib 74102286200 Providence 4-in-1 Crib, Dark Cherry 74102286210 Ellis 4-in-1 Crib, Antique Black 74102286768 Ellis 4-in-1 Crib, Espresso 74102238675 Ellis Crib, in Honey 74102286760 Natural Ellis Crib 74102286762 Ellis 4-in-1 Crib, White 74102286763 Graco Aspen 3 in 1 Crib 74102208740 Aspen 4 in 1 Crib, H 74102287450 Aspen 4-in-1 Crib, White 74102287480 Aspen 3-in-1 Crib, White 74102287403 Camille 4-in-1 Crib, Cream 74102287780 Camille Crib 74102287782 Pooh 4 in 1 Crib 74102208800 Nursery-in-a-Box, Cherry 74102289103 Newport 4-in-1 Crib Combo, Pecan 74102289920 Crib N Changer Combo 74102289951 Milan Crib N' Changer Combo, Honey 74102289957 Milan Crib n' Changer Combo, White 74102289954 Christina 4-in-1 Crib Combo 74102289963 Crib N Changer Combo 74102289964 Crib N Changer Combo 74102289984
Well, I guess we are included in this. DS has the Simplicity Ellis 4 in 1 crib. I was actually debating on turning it into a toddler bed this weekend for him since he's getting so big for the crib. Maybe we should just get him in to a big boy bed now.
We had one of the earlier recalls on their crap cribs. DO NOT USE THEM IN ANY FORM (meaning toddler bed etc)
We were able to return ours after 2 years to the store we bought it at without a reciept for about 60% of the cost. It was better than nothing and I felt happy knowing nobody else would try to use it. If someone picked it off the curb on trash day thinking it was a FREE thing rather than possibly recalled, I would be sick worrying about it!!
That doesn't look like something that converting it would help. It's the support frame, and that would be the same for the toddler bed, right? The full size would probably be ok because you have to get another frame, but I would check into it...
I HATE WALMART!! Our crib is part of the recall, I checked last night and we bought the crib at Walmart two years ago. Well I call them this morning and they are going off of a list of model numbers and my model number is not on their list. I told them that even on their website it says that it is ALL model numbers of ALL Simplicity cribs and they said that they are going to try to call their corporate return center and then call me back because they can only go off of the list that they get internally of product recalls regardless of what is on the Walmart or the CPSC's website. SOOOO FRUSTRATING!!
I printed a copy from the internet and brought it to the walmart store and they took it back even though it wasn't on their list. You might even try a different walmart because for some reason they even vary a lot store to store.
Jackie - try BRU too. My mother-in-law bought our crib for us..we didn't register for one just told her what we wanted in a crib. Anyway, DH called her last night and she said she couldn't remember where she bought it from. So I called BRU and told them that I got it as a gift and didn't have a receipt. They said that was fine, just bring it in and they'll give us a store credit based on the model number. I gave her the model number over the phone and she said we'd get $349.99 for it, of course I took her name incase I have any issues when I go in.
Well I crawled under the bed yesterday and searched the net for our model number. Ours is a 4 digit number with a letter. It does not match anything I can find. How do I get proof as to where I can get this corrected? I bought it at Wally but we have a half dozen in my town and I'm really not sure which one I bought it at.
All the simplicity cribs have been recalled, so if you know that you bought it at Walmart you can take it back to any. Our crib was a gift so I didn't know where it was bought from. I called Walmart and they said that they didn't sell the model number that we had but luckily BRU said I could bring it back there. The only issue we're having is that BRU is currently out of stock of all the covertible cribs/changing table combos, which is what we want. So we're just going to move DD to a twin bed and wait for the cribs to come in. Since we're not expecting yet, we're not in any hurry.
