* About 40,000 Nursery-in-a-Box cribs, manufactured by Simplicity Inc., were recalled because the assembly instructions incorrectly explain how to attach the drop side. If improperly attached, the drop side could disengage from the crib and put a child inside at risk of falling or getting trapped. In addition, the pins on the drop side can fall off and pose a choking hazard. The Consumer Product Safety Commission has received one report of metal pins detaching from the drop side, which was installed upside down and fell from the upright position.
