ATTORNEY GENERAL MADIGAN ISSUES STATEMENT IN RESPONSE TO CONSUMER PRODUCT SAFETY COMMISSION’S BAN ON DROP-SIDE CRIBS

“Today’s action by the Consumer Product Safety Commission to ban these deadly cribs will provide greater protection for infants and toddlers,” Attorney General Lisa Madigan said. “Too many children have been injured and killed by drop-side cribs. Manufacturers and industry trade groups must work to remove these cribs from the market immediately. My office will continue informing consumers of the dangers of drop-side cribs and working with retailers and second-hand sellers to remove the products from their shelves.”

Attorney General Madigan also urged parents and caregivers to take the time to review her Rest Assured guide to make sure they do not have dangerous items in their homes. The Rest Assured guide provides information to consumers about recalls of cribs or other sleep-related items for children from 2007 to date. To obtain a copy of the guide, consumers can call the Attorney General’s Product Recall Hotline at 1-888-414-7678 (TTY: 1-800-964-3013), or visit her website, www.illinoisattorneygeneral.gov.
