WASHINGTON - The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Thursday that Simplicity Inc. is recalling about 400,000 cribs that put babies at risk of death by suffocation.

Why blame the cribs when its obvious that the mother couldn't handle the child properly.

400k Cribs are being recalled because of a .0065% chance that the defect could manifest?

I'm surprised that people still go outside anymore, what with all the dangers swarming around them everywhere. We should all stay home and huddle in the closet, where it's safe.

Yeah, it's about lawsuits and cashing in. That's why everything is more and more expensive, because they have to build things "idiot proof".
Look at a bottle of liquor, those warnings for pregnant women not to drink....jeesh. I never drank when I was pregnant with my kids. Common sense.

If the company felt the defect was important enough in order to call in that many cribs, it was obviously a big deal.

Should we wait for a few more children to die? How many deaths would be enough?

Well, I am assuming you do not have this crib from the comment you left. It doesn't matter how much of a chance there is that this crib could break, it still has a defect and should be returned. I myself have to return my sons' crib bc it is one listed in this recall. Would you as a parent allow your child to remain sleeping in this crib if there is a chance of death?
