    Darn this is us!!! Anyone have to return a crib? What happened? Did you get a new one free?


    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:

    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:

    This may be me!! How do you find your model? We didn't save the book. Is it written on the bed?
    tamliz08 replied to ukbluegirl02's response:
    On ours it was engraved somewhere (can't remember exactly where). Maybe on the metal base rods? I had to get underneath the crib to read it.
    ukbluegirl02 replied to tamliz08's response:
    Thanks. I guess I'll be crawling on the floor tonight.
    dawlfin2 responded:
    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.
    earleyml1012 replied to dawlfin2's response:
    I talked to DH since we have the 4 in 1 too, we might convert to the toddler bed as well. Or we might just go to the full size bed with bed railings. Then if/when #2 comes we'll just buy a new crib.
    curleysue1968 replied to earleyml1012's response:
    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!!
    mamatobe08 replied to earleyml1012's response:
    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!!
    bella0715 replied to Jackie03291's response:
    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.
    earleyml1012 replied to Jackie03291's response:
    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.
    ukbluegirl02 replied to earleyml1012's response:
    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.
    tamliz08 replied to ukbluegirl02's response:
    You can take it back to any walmart. I'm pretty sure that most if not all simplicity cribs have been recalled in the past few years!! I say take it in, and demand your money back.
    earleyml1012 replied to tamliz08's response:
    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.

    walmart only keeps the recall things for one year... they cant help us anymore because it has been so long. call the number on the cpsc website for help... 18006382772
