Drop-side Recall and Safety

MDB is a family owned company and has a historic record of Safety for Family. News from the CPSC of the Drop-Side recall was welcomed here at MDB as we had already taken steps to phase out the Drop-Side feature prior to the CPSC announcement. We have taken these steps as part of our product development awareness program to develop leading products for Baby. We love family because we are family.

Together with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Juvenile Products Manufacturer Association (JPMA) and other Baby Crib Manufacturers, MDB is committed to coordinating the repair of thousands of cribs sold over a 10 year period.

As a leader of safety in our industry, we strive to set the bar for others to follow. Look for MDB to emerge ahead of the pack with new crib designs in the future.

Things to Check Before Installing Your Safety Kit

  • Properly Working Crib
    If your crib is functioning properly, you can continue to use the product. The installation of the MDB Safety Kit will create a static-side crib.
  • Poorly Maintained Crib
    Improper use, abuse over time, or inaccurate assembly of the drop-side crib has caused problems related to hardware breakage and failure. Installation of a MDB Safety Kit will prevent movement of the side railing, creating a static-side crib.
  • Broken Crib
    If your crib is already damaged, a safety kit is not the solution. Parents should find an alternative safe sleep environment for their baby immediately until a replacement crib is purchased.

Instructions

The MDB Safety Kit as provided by the CPSC can be attached to the crib to prevent the drop side from moving up and down. Installing a MDB Safety Kit will make any crib in functioning condition into a CPSC approved safe sleep space for baby.

Important Reminder

  • MDB, JPMA and the CPSC remind parents not to use any crib with missing, broken, or loose parts.
  • Make sure to tighten hardware from time to time to keep the crib sturdy. When using a drop-side crib, parents should check to make sure the drop side or any other moving part operates smoothly.
  • Always check all sides and corners of the crib for disengagement.
  • Disengagements can create a gap and entrap a child. In addition, do not try to repair any side of the crib,especially with duct tape, wire or rope.
