I'm sorry, but aren't these recalls getting a little out of hand. This one basically says that if the user puts it together wrong (although the instructions are right) that the baby could potentially fall (no injuries reported)... really?? That could happen to anything. If I put my kitchen table together wrong I could potentially get hurt, but they're not recalling that. I think these recalls seriously diminish the publics view of "recall" and we're soon not going to know about the truly hazardous ones because they're lost in this sea of garbage.
"Disability is not a brave struggle or ‘courage in the face of adversity.’ Disability is an art. It’s an ingenious way to live."
The reason for a recall is that if someone DOES get injured or killed, the company can say "we told you so" and won't be on the hook for it.
I think the recall for drop-sided cribs and clothing with draw strings has gotten out of hand. Those things are all being outlawed anyway. Some things have unknown risks, though, so they should be made known to the public.
