New York (AP) Delta Enterprises is voluntarily recalling nearly 1.6 million older versions of its drop-side cribs after two infant deaths.
The company says about 985,000 drop-side cribs made between 1995 and 2005 require safety pegs that consumers may have lost during reassembly.
Another 600,000 cribs have spring-pegs that can become worn out after many uses.
Both infants suffocated in their cribs. In one instance, there was no safety peg and when the crib's side detached, it left a gap the infant got stuck in. In the second instance, the infant died in a similar fashion when a spring-peg failed to lock and the side detached.
The recall doesn't affect any cribs in retail inventory now.
The company has set up a web site at www.cribrecallcenter.com. consumers can also call 1-800-876-5304.
