Madigan believes manufacturers shouldn't shift the burden to parents with complicated repair kits. She filed a lawsuit against the SFCA, which recalled select Simplicity, Inc. brand drop-side cribs. Due to sizing problems with the crib's hardware, the drop side can come off the tracks and create a potentially hazardous gap.
"When the CPSC announced the recall of 900,000 Simplicity bassinets in late August, 2008, SFCA refused to cooperate with the recall, despite the tragic deaths of at least two babies in these bassinets that were identical in design to the bassinets that SFCA distributed," said Lisa Madigan, Illinois Attorney General.
Madigan is also offering a guide to parents that includes recalls for the last 13 months.
