Gillibrand Bill to Ban Drop-side Cribs by Zachary Kineke -

Read original...

More than seven million drop-side cribs have been recalled in the past five years alone.

Now, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand will introduce a bill to outlaw the manufacture and sale of all drop-side cribs, and ban them from day-care centers and hotels. At least 32 infants and toddlers have been suffocated or strangled in these cribs since 2000.

Major retailers such as Wal-Mart and Babies-R-Us have already stopped selling them.
