Two recalls today: Cribs & baby floats

If you think you have the following item(s), click through to the CPSC press release for more details:

Simplicity Drop Side Cribs Recalled by Retailers Due to Risk of Death from Suffocation - Click through for more photos.

Aqua-Leisure Industries Recalls Inflatable Baby Floats Due to Drowning Hazard - Click through for photos of other float styles.

As always, I highly recommend signing up for recall notifications by email at the CPSC web site.

    Cathy, Thanks so much for this post and all your recall posts. I have found out about so many recalls in my home due to your website. I will link back to you tomorrow morning (in a scheduled post.) Again, thanks.

    I have a simplicity drop side crib. Giving as a gift early in my pregnancy in '07. I do not have a receipt. It was bought at the Lacey, WA Shopko. The first time I called Shopko they said they would not take it back and would not do any sort of store credit, because they no longer carry that crib--Of course they dont its been recalled. So then I called the CPSC-they said there is nothing they could do either other than advise me to get rid of the crib.
    So I called Shopko again, spoke w/ a different person, and they are going to give me store credit.

    So anyway my point is I learned to keep/get receipts and to be persistant w/ these things.

    I was just going to look into this when I saw you were already on the ball! I have that floaty in my pool right now! I called and after being on hold for 27 min I was told to cut out certain parts of the raft and mail it in for a $10 rebate check. Thanks again for the info- I linked to you!
