CPSC Reissues 2008 Delta Crib Recall

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reissued its 2008 recall of 985,000 Delta cribs on March 22, 2011after the manufacturer, Delta Enterprises, Inc., learned of the death of a 7-month-old girl in 2009 after she had become entrapped between the detached drop-side and the mattress of the crib and suffocated.  The crib had been purchased second-hand and reassembled without the safety pegs in the bottom racks of the crib.

The CPSC issued its original recall of the Delta drop-side cribs in 2008 following the death of an 8-month-old girl who had become entrapped and suffocated in the crib.  At the time of the original recall, the CPSC warned consumers that missing safety pegs could cause the crib's drop-side rail to disengage from the track, creating a hazardous space in which a child could become entrapped and suffocate.

The reannouncement of the recall involves cribs made in Taiwan and Indonesia and sold between January 1995 and December 2005 at major retail stores, such as Kmart, Target and Walmart for approximately $100. The CPSC urges parents to be cautious about buying used cribs.

The recalled cribs include the following model numbers (located on the top of the mattress support board):


  • 4320, 4340;

  • 4500, 4520, 4530, 4532, 4540, 4542, 4550, 4551, 4580;

  • 4600, 4620, 4624 - production dates 01/06 thru 11/07, 4640, 4660, 4720, 4735, 4742, 4750 - production dates 01/95 thru 12/00;

  • 4760, 4770, 4780, 4790;

  • 4820, 4840, 4850, 4860, 4880, 4890, 4892; and

  • 4900, 4910, 4920, 4925-2, 4925-6, 4930, 4940, 4943, 4944, 4947, 4948, 4949, 4950, 4958, 4963, 4968, 4969, 4980.


Delta's name and address is printed on the mattress support boards and its logo is on the crib's top teether rail.

Parents and caregivers should immediately stop using the recalled cribs and contact Delta at (800 816-5304 or www.cribrecallcenter.com to receive a free, easy-to-install repair kit. In the meantime, parents and caregivers should find a safe, alternative sleep environment for their child until the repair kit, including new safety pegs, can be safely installed on the crib.
