Investigation and potential lawsuit against Delta Enterprise.
Several infants were seriously injured of killed due to the design and manufactured failures of cribs manufactured by Delta Enterprises. Delta Enterprise recalled over 1.5 million Delta Enterprise Corp. drop side cribs. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued the recalls in cooperation with Delta Enterprise Corp. after findings that 985,000 cribs were manufactured and packaged without safety pegs and an additional 600,000 cribs have a safety peg failure defect. The missing safety pegs can lead to the disengagement and detachment of crib locks, creating a dangerous gap. The gap can cause entrapment and suffocation hazards to infants. As of October 21, 2008, there were two reports of infant deaths, two entrapments and nine disengagement incidents in cribs with missing safety pegs.
One recall is for 985,000 cribs manufactured by Delta Enterprise Corp. in Taiwan or Indonesia with the "crib trigger lock with safety peg" drop side design. These cribs were sold at retailers including, but not limited to, Walmart, Kmart and Target.com in the period from January 1995 to September 2007. They may also be found at secondhand retail stores.
The essential information for each crib, including model number and country of origin, can be found on the mattress support label. Model numbers subject to the recall are: 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, 4900, 4910, 4920, 4925-2, 4925-6, 4930, 4940, 4943, 4944, 4947, 4948, 4949, 4950, 4958, 4963, 4968, 4969, 4980.
The other recall is for 600,000 drop side cribs manufactured by Delta Enterprise Corp. with the 'crib trigger lock with spring peg' drop side design. These cribs were sold at retailers nationwide in the period from January 2000 to January 2007. The essential information for each crib, including model number and country of origin, can be found on the mattress support label. Model numbers subject to the recall are: 4340, 4343, 4520, 4600, 4620, 4624, 4625, 4629, 4660, 4665, 4720, 4750, 4751, 4850, 4855, 4857, 4880, 4920, 4925 -2, 4925-2B, 4925-6, 4980, and 8605.
