I had brought a child craft baby bed not knowing it was a drop down side. I went to put the side back up and it just fell down, it won't stay up. I looked online and saw a recall for it. I would love this bed fixed or have a new replacement. I am a first time mom and I do not want my baby or anyone else's baby hurt because of this particular bed. Please help me either fix this product or junk it and give me a better bed for my child!

Comment from Child Craft 4/17/2012
We are in receipt of Report No. 20120328-59D98-2147468869 with regards to the Child Craft crib model F17731.48. Foundations Worldwide Inc. is the current owner of the Child Craft name but was not involved in the manufacture or design of the crib itself. Child Craft Crib model F17731.48 was voluntarily recalled by Foundations in a joint effort with the CPSC in June of 2010. While no incidents had been reported on this unit, it utilized the same type of hardware system that had experienced failures by other brands of cribs.

Foundations provided a rebate as a gesture of goodwill to owners of Child Craft branded drop side cribs that were recalled.. As a part of the recall, owners of these cribs were offered a rebate on the purchase of a new Child Craft crib during the time period of June 25, 2010 and December 31, 2010. As [REDACTED]purchased the crib in January of 2012 she was obviously outside of the rebate time period. More importantly, though, is the fact that the crib in this report is a non-compliant crib – non compliant to the new December 28, 2010 crib standards. To the knowledge of Foundations, this model crib has not been produced since 2007. According to [REDACTED], it was sold to her by a Community Chest in TN on January 12, 2012. Per the CPSC's new crib standards, it is UNLAWFUL to sell or donate any non-compliant cribs after June 28, 2011. This crib should never have been sold to [REDACTED] in the first place. Her complaint should be with the site that sold her the crib in January of 2012 as it was unlawful to do so. Additionally, it appears that the crib was sold at a consignment or second hand store. It is unlawful to resell used cribs.
